There’s a proverb that says, “Visiting is good but home is better”. It rings true indeed as ‘Home’ after all is that comfortable feeling like no other. It is a reflection of who we are and what we adore. It is a collection of bricks, beams, hopes and dreams. And so it needs loads of careful tending and nourishing like any other living, breathing entity.
At Ratan, we understand this feeling. We understand what goes into adding that touch of personal style and grace to a home and so we are here with an exquisite range of ethnic, hand-printed bed furnishing.
Special care is taken at Ratan with regards to fabric and prints. With a promise of the best quality we use Voile which is a soft, sheer fabric, usually made of 100% cotton or cotton blended with linen or polyester. The term is French for veil. Because of its light weight, it is an apt choice when weaving a razai. The voile is used for the body of the razai and the filling is made of 100% cotton. For all seasons, cotton is the best fabric for making furnishings owing to its many qualities of being non-allergic, skin friendly and extremely durable.
We also specialize in ‘Dohar’, a traditional Indian summer blanket. It is made of 3 layers of the finest cotton muslin. The fabric is exceptionally soft. The light and airy dohars are perfect for hot climates and get softer with every wash. This is especially useful with infants around who need soft and comfortable fabrics around them at bedtime or in their strollers and play times. This special range for infants is also available at Ratan. All this is woven, apart from the always handy bed and cushion/pillow covers that are used daily and in a range of sizes that too, from the ‘king and queen size’ to single beds. To enhance the quality of our work, the bedcovers are made using the percale weaves technique which is to weave together threads tighter than the usual weave increasing the durability and quality of the cotton used.
‘What’s so unique about our furnishing?’ you may ask yet and we’d only direct you to see the absolutely stunning, intricate and elegant prints of each piece. Our designs have an essence of craftsmanship and excellence with ethnic prints, combined with the softness and comfort of pure cotton. It breathes a life of freshness and royalty into every article. In each item we can see the attention to detail with the emphasis on both traditional Rajasthani hand-made block prints as well as the modern digital print, bringing the balance between the magic of the old and the technology of the new. From lovely floral prints to minimalistic checkered ones, we have a wide range for everyone’s tastes. Rajasthani hand-block printing designs always stand out to the eye due to their symmetry and detailing. With colours like turquoise, yellows, orange, blues, reds; and blends of all, the prints are eye catching yet very soothing to look at. Also, with names like ‘Jaal’, ‘Azalea’, ‘Sarovar’, ‘Aradhya’, ‘Maher’; these pieces reflect a regal feel much like the Rajasthani heritage.
At Ratan Jaipur we make homes charming and alluring with a mix of ethnicity and modernity that’s magnetic for the heartstrings. We elevate the hopes and dreams within those bricks and beams.
