Earlier only the Pakistan currency notes were used for this purpose but a new aspect is emerging in this reference nowadays with emerging trend of placing orders for US dollars for making these garlands.

Majority of people still ask for currency garland of Pakistani rupee. They may ask for preparing these garlands with bank currency notes from lowest denomination to highest denomination. However, there are persons who nowadays would like to place orders for preparing currency notes garlands in which United States currency is used as decorating material besides other stuff.

Generally one dollar currency notes are used for preparing these garlands but they would be of higher denominations as well depending upon the financial condition of the buyers, stated a shopkeeper of flower shop in Rawalspindi.

Mainly fresh 500 currency notes are required for making an average currency note garland. The shopkeepers themselves acquire these notes and they charge Rs1200 per garland as their labour besides the actual worth of these currency notes from the buyers.

However, after the lockdown the business flourished again but once again some restrictions on marriage halls which have been imposed recently are posing some threats for the business,” stated an owner of flower shop.
