Indian Industries, founded in 1945 is the oldest handicrafts shop in Fort Cochin and Mattancherry. Functioning from a 400 year old Dutch building, this shop has seen it all; from the sleepy one horse town that Fort Cochin once was to the bustling tourist spot that is today. Though the streets and surroundings have witnessed umpteen changes, Indian Industries by and large remains the same. It’s a store where time has not spoilt nor changed things despite the sea of change seen all around. Shopping is never a hassle or a chore here, but on the contrary a pleasure, as one can browse leisurely. Our visitors' book and press write ups bear testimony to the rave reviews we have received through the years from those who have visited us.The shops sells silver, stone, white metal and camel bone jewelery; wooden and brass figures; cloth paper machie, laq and leather hangings; life like rose wood elephants; antique finish goods; bell metal and brass wares; furniture and screen; bags, purses and pouches, wooden toys, souvenirs, trinkets and lots more.

This shop has been in the same family since the late 1940's and has high quality items with fixed prices. I met the owner and he was a fascinating and friendly man. He shared amazing stories with us about the Jews of Cochin and the...More

This shop is the best one I found in Fort Kochi. Open since 1945 it contains a treasure trove of jewellery, statues and many other things you will not find in the more touristy shops. John, the owner, is a wealth of knowledge about Fort...More

This really is an amazing shop located on Princess Street. It is like a veritable Aladdin's cave and it goes a lot further back than the entrance gives away. They have a lot of modern stuff in here but they also have some replica items...More

This store is amazing! Full of interesting pieces that are different to anything else in Kerala and so much better than the typical Kasmiri tourist tack that can be found everywhere else at inflated prices. Don't be put off by the somewhat dark interior, there...More
