    The main shopping centers of Bahawalpur are Shahi Bazaar, Machli Bazaar, Farid Gate.

    Bahawalpur is known for its cotton, silk, embroidery, carpets, and extraordinarily delicate pottery, which is produced here.

    The Punjab Small Industries Corporation (PSIC) has established a Craft Development Center for Cholistan area, outside Farid Gate, Bahawalpur from where handicrafts manufactured in Cholistan can be purchased.

    Flassi

    It is a piece of 4X7 feet size, made of camel hair and cotton yarn. It is used for wall hanging, as a decoration piece and a carpet.

    Gindi or Rilli

    Made of small pieces of many colors of cotton cloth and needle work. It can be used as wall hangings, bed covers, carpets and blankets.

    Changaries

    Like big plaques, these are made of palm leaves in different bright colors with beautiful patterns and geometric designs. These are used for keeping the 'chapattis' and also as a wall decoration.

    Khalti
