Hot Pink - The first concept store in Jaipur, Rajasthan! A collaboration of Munnu Kasliwal and Marie-Helene de Taillac, Hot Pink offers chic and contemporary fashion from Indian designers, who respect and use traditional Indian techniques.

While the beautifully designed site of this store, located at Narain Niwas, immediately attracts your attention, the site also has a treasure trove of information on Jaipur. From Jaipur shopping recommendations to heritage hotels to local tourist map, all made lovely by Jean -Philippe Delhomme's beautiful paintings!

You can download the very well put together Jaipur guide for your next Jaipur trip!

Also totally worth drooling over are Marie-Helene de Taillac jewels! Look through Marie's site for absolutely gorgeous fine jewellery designed by her, using gemstones and craftsmen expertise from India.

I am waiting for my next windfall to acquire one of Jean's paintings and one (maybe two, or three?) of Marie's jewels. So long..
