The first floor (located on the second floor of the building) houses items that include women's fashions such as salwar kameez (long tunics over loose pajama bottoms), shoes, and silver and pearl jewelry. On the second floor you will find a sari for every occasion: silk, cotton, and the traditional and unique Bangladeshi jamdani weave. The third floor houses men's fashions such as silk punjabis (long tunics), lungis (plaid cotton sarongs), shirts, vests and shoes. The fourth floor has handicrafts including brass items such as candlesticks and knick-knacks, macrame items, handwoven baskets, and even dolls.
Top off your shopping expedition with a snack of tea and samosas at the cafe located on the top floor overlooking the intersection of Mirpur Road and Manik Mia Avenue. Enjoy watching the traffic go by and the view of the Parliament building down the way.
