If there is one Jaipur shop that you should not miss when there is a wedding in the family, or if you want a traditional Rajasthani Saree, it is Ranas, located in Johari Bazar. Ranas Jaipur has a smaller branch in Ganpati Plaza.
In a way, Jaipur shopping is defined by this shop as they stock all the traditional fabrics & designs. One of the most well known shops in the city, it sells traditional bridal lehangas and sarees in a wide range of fabrics, design and fashion. You can select from georgette, net, chiffon, satin and silk with embroidery, sequence work, Zardosi work and gottapatti work (silver /gold zari applique work). The range is fascinating and extremely colorful with bright pinks, reds, blues, greens and yellow in profusion.
Leheriya and bandhej, the very traditional Rajasthani tie and dye design techniques, are present in many of the garment pieces. Grand ornate bridal lehengas can also be ordered. It takes anywhere between 2-4 months for an intricate lehenga piece to be created. The measurements are all noted in Marwadi (local) language.
In the ground floor, you may explore shopping for traditional sarees in Kota chiffon, georgette and crepe with zardosi, sequins and embroidery work. Additionally, you could also check out salwar suitpieces in traditional designs at this floor.
Ranas is one of the best Jaipur shops for traditional bridal lehengas.
