Time Out says

A store to express your style.

An elegant façade down Alfred House Gardens, shaded by serene temple trees, is a paradise for those who seek an ethnic or traditional style. Rithihi is not an everyday retail experience.

Rithihi’s hallmark is their wide range of vibrant saris. With saris from all the regions of India, the collection caters to all tastes. Intricately hand embroidered, or daintily worked saris makes Rithihi an oasis of six- yard pleasure. Many of these saris have taken at least 6 months to complete and thus boast of detailed artistry. Simple cotton saris that let its modesty speak for itself too are available. Exclusive and one-of-a-kind Indian and Sri Lankan designer saris are also available at Rithihi.

The store also provides traditional clothing including kurthas, jackets, pants, shawls and jewellery. The top floor has a colourful collection of dupattas (shawls) and stoles that would make the perfect tasteful and delicate accessory to both Western and ethnic outfits. A wide collection of kurthas designed to perfection exudes grace and opulence with a hint of lavishness. Compliments are guaranteed for the wearer of these works of art at any special function.

Unique accessories such as earrings, necklaces, bangles and rings can also be purchased here. Natural soaps, body salts, lotions and oils that are organic products of Sri Lanka are also available here. Rithihi is a colourful paradise of style that has stood the test of time.
