India is world famous for
its rich variety of traditions and cultures. Where else in the world will you

states is Rajasthan, which is a famous tourist spot and one that is world
renowned for the type of treatment it dishes out. It has it's very own brand of fabric named after its
capital: Jaipur Fabric.
What is it?
The fabric of this place
is what gives the entire city its identity. Back in the day, this was
exclusively used to weave clothes for the kings and queens. It is made by the
artists who live in Jaipur and all the other cities that are nearby in Rajasthan.
It holds a lot of traditional values as
well. A similar item to this cannot be found anywhere else. Hence, its name is Jaipur fabric.
The fabric also has a
Jaipuri print on it to denote its exclusive nature. This fabric is used to make
more or less all the products in the state of Rajasthan. That includes bags,
saris, dress materials, quilts, surfs, covers for cushions and many others. That
is why the clothing industry thrives as much as it does in the state of
What is unique about it?
The fabric itself has a
lot of varieties. You will find tons of
different prints, hand blocks, materials, etc. The material itself varies a
lot and ranges from cotton to silk to a bigger spectrum of colourful and innovative
designs. And because of this unique nature, they are widely exported to other
countries worldwide. Hence, they are in constant demand as well.
The best part about this
fabric is the way it can not only be utilised for making clothes but also Jaipuri bed sheets. Not to mention, Jaipuri bed sheets are one of the finest brands of Indian bed sheets. And it's just not limited to bed sheets. This
fabric has also been utilised for making cushion covers, multi-sized quilts and home decorative items as well.
Jaipuri fabric bed sheets
The reason Indian bed sheets are such in high
demand in a lot of foreign countries is this fabric in particular. And why wouldn't
the demand be high? The sheets are made from cotton of the finest available
quality. The print on these sheets varies from a simple colour to beautifully
designed block prints. Usually, most of the sheets are made from cotton.
However, the most expensive bed sheets are made of silk.
The printing is done
exclusively by local craftsmen. The colours they use are also of the finest
quality, they never fade away too easily, even after 10 to 12 years of usage. The
grams per square meter ratio used for this cotton is also of the highest order.
You can easily feel that by lifting the bed sheet. And although it is true that
this fabric is comparatively expensive than others, the quality to quantity
ratio is still pretty high.
