I've had something from al-Muhajaba el-Aniqa before ... maybe about a year ago, so it's not the most up-to-date experience. For just scarves their prices are a little higher than comparable, but I wasn't unhappy overall. If you're having trouble getting in touch with the proprietress you might try contacting her through her blog
... online hijab sellers have a bad habit of disappearing without a trace, but around the two eids it's usually just more a question of distraction.
They're British, but Islam Orient
, The Hijab Shop
, Scarf World
, and Hijab World
work out at least better than I expected with shipping and the exchange rate (well, the latter two can get pricey sometimes), and have pretty stellar reputations. (I've had my eye on this
for, um, roughly forever, but there is NO way I can justify the cost.
They do have options across price ranges though.)
I feel like I recommend them for everything clothing related, but several of my favorite scarves come from Shukr
. Check their main page ... there's a coupon code for free shipping at the moment.
I've never been a big fan of the look of their prints, but the solid colored scarves and accessories I've had from http://www.almuhajabat.com/
have been good quality, and I've had great customer service from them.
I have a shawl from this ebay store
... sooo much nicer/richer than shown). Also here
, for less winter-only things.
Oh, and if you like the sleeve-type underscarves, Veiled by Design
has every color under the sun available. Although not the pure cotton that one would gather from her product descriptions.
