This company was created in the 1960s by a British designer who had items made here for export to the U.K. and elsewhere. The combination of Eastern and Western influences has resulted in elegant and flattering designs that have become hugely popular around the world. Anokhi is part of a growing design movement that taps into the skills of local craftspeople and gives those crafts a modern twist. Hand-blocked prints, hand-woven fabrics, and natural dyes are the hallmark of Anokhi's products, which include gorgeous garments for men, women, and children, and a wide range of feminine home furnishings -- anything from duvet and cushion covers to napkins. Prices are significantly higher than those in the bazaars, but the quality of design is in another league. After stuffing your shopping basket, eat a healthy lunch at the Organic Cafe, which serves daily specials, salads, desserts, and fresh juices.
