Online Saree Shopping in Sri Lanka: The Artisanal Aspect

For online saree shopping in Sri Lanka, the prospects are quite often limited to collections with little sensibility in their arrangement and conveyed with too little information. Add to the list of frustrations of querying after a particular design only to find out that it is no longer available, an all too common occurrence.  

The newly launched Rithihi online experience was designed to stand apart from this commoditized outlook to realize a more need satisfying and value adding platform for the discerning saree lover looking to buy sarees online in Sri Lanka.

What’s different about Rithihi ‘online’?

Being an artisanal brand, we feel our sarees need to be portrayed in a more experiential tone and to this end, we have used an almost narrative-driven approach to communicate key information such as colour, style, heritage and occasions for wear. Customers will be able to visualize the ideal setting for their saree of choice as well as other tasteful deviations they can explore.

Even our categorization of products are at a highly granular level, broken down to the degree of various sub-styles within a particular generic (under silk, you would have the different design cultures Kanchipuram, Benaras, Tussar and others distinguished individually).

A taste of our persona, a touch of refinement

Rithihi is an identity, one that we have nurtured for decades. It defines our thought, mannerisms and ultimately, our actions. Every piece we craft or source, is a reflection of it. 

Our online presence, if we have succeeded, should give you a comprehensive idea of what the Rithihi identity is and in doing so, also enlighten you as to what can be expected from us. 

The affinity we have for various art forms and the inspiration they give to our process of creation will be evident through the many collaborations and endorsements that are highlighted. Naturally, with such a close inclination to art, it goes without saying that each of our wares carry some essence of the art or cultural movement behind its inspiration, which ultimately fuses with your own perception of individuality. No other experience of online saree shopping in Sri Lanka offers such a concentration of substance through any one product.

With an expansive selection sarees, textiles, shawls, stoles, ready-to-wear items and accessories, crafted from a variety of fabrics and materials, all presented with a sense of artful depth that speaks to more than your utilitarian desires, Rithihi ‘online’ promises a truly transformative experience. What began as a simple search query of ‘buy sarees online Sri Lanka’, will end up becoming a journey of greater fulfilment.
