The story of Handloom Emporium starts way before 1967 and is incomplete without knowing its owner Late Shri KC Bhatia.
Mr. Bhatia spent 5 years in Salem, a small city in Tamil Nadu (then known as Madras), learning about handloom sarees from 1962-1967. He returned to Jaipur and started Handloom Emporium, which was dedicated to sarees and home decors such as curtains and tapestry. Sarees that he chose were not the ones that could generally be found at every shop but sarees from the smallest regions of India, which hosted handloom weaving, such as Tangail from West Bengal, Village Cotton from Tamil Nadu, etc. The wives of army staff who had relocated to Jaipur loved visiting Handloom Emporium because they found sarees from their native lands there.
During this time, his sons took over the business and expanded it. They traveled the country searching for authentic handloom weavers and looms that would cater to Jaipur’s now-awakened need for sarees from different states of India. In the time that came, sarees gained more momentum and slowly wound up the curtains and tapestry side of the business focusing only on handloom sarees by 1992.
In 1999 they established their second store at Ganpati Plaza, M.I Road, and started including suits and Jaipuri apparel such as Bandhej, Leheriya, and Ghatchola.
When ready-made suits for women were all the rage, they focused on unstitched suit material that projected handloom heritage.
In 2005 our Nehru Bazaar store acquired more space, and we expanded our variety in handlooms of India from silk, cotton, Georgette, chiffon, etc.
Fast forward to 2017, we opened our third showroom at Vaishali Nagar. This is where Mr. Bhatia’s third generation, his grandchildren, started helping in the business. In 2021, we relaunched our website along with our social media channels.
From Banarasi of Uttar Pradesh to Kanchivaram sarees of Tamil Nadu, from Muga Silk of Assam to Rajkot of Gujarat, today we maintain authentic Handwoven variety from over 14 states of India.
