DESTINATIONS bangladesh dhaka Shopping Aranya


Aranya is perhaps the best place to get high-quality traditional Bangladeshi clothing. Silk, cotton and other yarns are hand-dyed here and then woven and embroidered into saris, ready-to-wears and other accessories. They take great pride in having revived two traditional garments: Jamdanis and Kanthas.


Shopping in Dhaka can be quite an experience. The noise and crowds of the markets can be overwhelming, but very rewarding, smaller boutiques offer truly unique items, clothing and accessories, and the large shopping centres provide just about anything one could need. Clothing is perhaps the most sought-after product, from the high-quality designer items, to the brand-name excesses straight from the factories.
