Trousseau packing for a wedding in the family can be a very tedious thing. All the gifts and giveaways aren’t any good till they are packaged well.

So if you come trousseau shopping in jaipur or come for hosting a wedding in jaipur or are interested in hassle free and gorgeous trousseau packing there are 2 places that are great. There is Vandana Fancy & Craft Centre in Bapu Bazaar and there is The Modern Paper House opp Sarga Sooli in Old Jaipur.

Modern Paper House is a bit on the expensive side but has a variety of stuff from baskets to different fabrics to readymade bags and pouches that you can use for packing. They also keep a variety of gorgeous handmade envelopes, gift paper bags and a host of other craft items that you can purchase and do the packing on your own (In case you do not want to get it done). To reach Modern Paper House, go to Johri Bazaar and go straight till you reach the round about. From the Round about take left towards sarga sooli and keep looking towards your side of the road- The Modern Paper House is shop no. 500 something- its fairly famous so you can ask anyone on that lane and get guided.
