Shopping in Karnataka

If you are wondering what to buy in Karnataka, you will be amazed at the assorted variety of things to buy here. Shopping in Karnataka is all about buying bidriware, blackened white metal with silver inlay, which are Karnataka’s best-known contribution at India stalls in any fair.

Bidriware is crafted into ornamental bowls, boxes, hookahs, among other things. Mysore is famed for its ittra which are sweet smelling perfumes extracted from flowers, sandalwood, and rosewood. A little dab envelops the wearer with its aroma. Sandalwood and rosewood are put to use in statuettes, paperknives, bookmarks, and furniture.

If you are in the market for a gleaming chest of delicately carved rosewood, Mysore should be where you head. Luscious silks, slippery chiffons, and crepe are famous products of Karnataka. Trinkets and durries of natural fibre in vibrant colours could be picked up if you’re scouring the shops in Mangalore, Karwar, Tumkur, and Dharwar. Lacquer ware and ceramics are also potential buys.
