Ever Order A Dastaar Online?

Recommended Posts

Curious, have you ever ordered a dastaar online? Why or why not?

I'm starting an online dastaar company and would love your input.

I have only tried once a little bit of a risk as I couldn't inspect goods (stretchy type of dastaar material) but since it was for inner dastaar of dumulla was not too bad of a risk. Plus colour replication on screen is hard if you want to sell different shades .

Usually you have to think about a couple of things weight of cloth for strength vs. heat trapped in there Summer weight vs winter weight for different styles . I would love to be able to get turban material in narrower width to make it more suitable for smaller/kids heads. Adult widths end up looking way to big then you cut them down leaving raw edges which are a pain for newbies to hide.

I purchase 70% of my home purchase online.

Reason i don't sikh items buy online because:

1. Quality not too good

2. Price too high (Shipping)

3. Not too professional (Many shop owners are not serious)

This is great! The more choice in Dasataar websites the better.

Are you able to change the picture on your website to that of a Gursikh?

Or maybe a whole load of different styles of dastaar so it widen the appeal ... links to good turban tying vids might be helpful to those experimenting (youths and women).

I have lately ordered my Turbans online from various vendors

Interesting. I have a few follow up questions.

Which sites?

Why do you order online?

What do you want to see that's not on the sites you order from?

Wonderful, thank you for the suggestions!

I've always regarded ordering dastars online but talking to other people I've found out that sometimes colors of dastars posted online can be a little off and some fabrics aren't as good as they're said to be

We've been selling dastars worldwide via our online store (www.SikhiStore.com) for over 2 and a half years now. Take a look and see.

As Amritdhari Gursikhs ourselves, we struggled getting our items and online Sikhi Shops at the time as you say seemed a bit hit and miss. This is the reason we started SikhiStore. We are a professional UK based Sikhi Store offering low cost quick delivery (all orders placed before 5pm are posted out next working day) and we only stock good quality items we would use ourselves. As it was set up as a self sustaining service for the Sangat and not about making lots of money, all our prices are also very affordable. Take a look: www.SikhiStore.com
