The term ‘trousseau’ originates from a French word that means ‘bundle’. It is generally used for a bundle of clothes, money, and other articles that a bride gets in her marriage. This giving of articles, clothing, and money is an important part of Indian wedding. This practice is an age old tradition and even today in the modern times it is considered to be an earthly treasure.
Unlike other gift packaging, items are wrapped in traditional materials like Gold, Silver paper. They are decorated with ornaments. Traditionally, articles for the bridegroom's family are in 11,21,51,101 or 201 quantities. These numbers are thought to be lucky; the extra 1 signifies Sagan or luck.
