Hi Mamas,

 

I'm not sure where to post this, so if anyone has suggested, please let me know. I'm looking to purchase South Asian or Western Asian clothing. I'm particularly comfortable in clothing made in Pakistan, but have purchased clothing made in several other countries and been very happy. Any suggestions for stores in the US or online sites would be great. Also, if there are places you've purchased from that you would not recommend, that would be helpful to know.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

No specific help to offer, but I wonder if the finding your tribe area would be a good place to check in? There might be some mamas there familiar with what you're looking for and at least be able to offer some online places to start looking?

The only other thing I can think of is if you do a google search for whatever type of garment you are looking for.

Thanks! I know of a few places in my local areas (but sadly not many), so I am interested in hearing too about stores in other cities or online places. smile.gif

Do you live anywhere near Chicago? Devon Ave. on the North Side has many Indian/Pakistani clothing stores.

I'm not near Chicago, but am very intrigued to hear about the Indian/Pakistani clothing stores on Devon Ave. Do you know the names of any of the stores? Are there any you'd particularly recommend? Thanks so much for your help!

I have only window shopped the sari stores (while shopping for Indian sweets or spices biggrinbounce.gif), but here is a listing:

 

http://www.devonavenue.com/freebusinesses/clothing.htm

 

Not sure how up-to-date that is. Good luck!
