If there is a wedding in the family, this is the place to shop. The market is known for all types of wedding finery – sehra or grooms turbans, ornate lehengas, bridal veils, gold brocade sherwanis, in fact the entire bridal trousseau is available both on hire and for sale. There are countless little shops selling garlands made of gold and silver tinsel, crisp currency notes, colourful beads, colourful gleaming sequins and so on. In embroidery, kinari means edging or borders – so the small market is replete with ribbons and borders for saris and salwars. The collection is huge – plain, silver and gold textured patterns, gold strings, mirror-work, kundan, sequin, lace, embroidery, embellishments galore! The borders come in lots of colours and varying widths, from thin ribbon strings to four-inch borders for lehengas. Borders are normally sold as nine-meter pieces and cost anything between Rs. 400 and Rs. 3000 each ,depending on the work. This market also has some shops which sell gift boxes, tissue cloth bags, ribbons and gold- plated trays for weddings or special occasions. Also available are aesthetic gift wraps and envelopes for gift cheques and cash as well.
