Canvas Paintings and Scrolls with Local Motifs, the ‘Tashi Tagey’ or the Eight Lucky Signs, Wooden Dragon Wall Hangings, Cloth Bags, Handmade Paper Products etc…
Tibetan woolen carpets made of pure sheep wool woven with intricate designs and patterns maybe a little expensive but definitely worth the price.
These are scrolls usually with religious depictions, represented by deities surrounded by followers and often contained within a mandala or magic circle. The ones by master artists are very expensive but you can also get cheaper versions in the many handicraft shops in town.
These are small wooden ornate tables carved in traditional style. These can be conveniently folded and carried away.
The Dragon set is unique to Sikkim. Intricately carved in silver and gold and inlaid with precious stones these consist of finely designed dragons on earrings, pendants, bracelets and finger-rings. You can also buy other silver jewelry as well as precious stones from some shops in Gangtok.
The Temi Tea Estate in Sikkim grows excellent tea which is highly prized in the world market. Carry a few packets of Temi which is irresistibly flavoured by the mists and mountains of South Sikkim.
Jams and Juices
Sikkim produces some excellent juices and jams at the Government Fruit Preservation Factory. Pick up some canned juices or bottles of orange and pineapple squash and the very popular Passion fruit juice.
