Wrapping papers at Aarong

To many, a gift for that special one is incomplete unless neatly wrapped in folds of paper. Some prefer to do it all by themselves, just to add to the personal touch of the thought being conveyed.

Aarong offers an extensive range of hand-made wrapping papers with exquisite textures to match your taste. Some made from silk paper, bear geometric or floral patterns imprinted through hand block prints or screen print, while Jamdani motifs adorn wrappers in normal texture. For children, there are wrappers bearing animated characters that will surely bring a smile on the faces of the little ones.

Made from 100 percent recycled paper, these wrappers are environment friendly.

For the coming New Year, just step into any Aarong outlet and find your favorite gift, wrap it with a paper of your choice and be ready to receive compliments for your exquisite taste!
