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

    • No but hunger and homelessness are problems today which is why I think @shastarSingh is interested in a variety of things the Paanth could grow, make, forage or hunt that would benefit them and positively impact their lifestyle. Cotton doesn't grow everywhere. So if somebody has a mind to grow their own clothes, or create an export product, interest in hemp makes sense. 
    • Have you read the side effects of pharma? Have you never seen a class action lawsuit against pharma? Have you never heard of pharma faking or bypassing safety and legislative measures? I'd take insulin if I was diabetic in conjunction with all holistic measures.  I'm not against medicine bro practiced properly. That's only a percentage of the medicine practiced however.  Nobody is debating the efficacy of stitches. Nobody goes schizo from Sukha either bro. You're reefer mad. 
    • We live in the 21st Century!  Nihung Singhs bana is made from cotton as it always was.  Nihung Singhs to this day do not use hemp for dietary needs.  Nihung Singhs do not live in houses made from hemp.     Marijuana also carries the risk of triggering one the worst diseases ‘schizophrenia’ losing your mind.  This disease is no good for any Tyar bey Tyar Singh.    The biggest ninda is when you make rituals out practices that were a part of our glorious warriors day to day life.  Indulging in these practices when one not living the life of Nihung Singh is ninda.
    • I have personally never seen any young Nihung Singh excel from using Cannabis but you can’t take my personal encounters and discount anybody’s medical findings regarding the use.  The same should apply to you when you make claims about your encounter with schizophrenia.  The fact is that Cannabis does have a link to psychosis and schizophrenia and this is backed up by research. Regarding modern pharma and negative affects, this is too deep to even converse on.  I do know that when Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj was injured from a wound inflicted by a dagger, a European Surgeon was given the task to tend the wound.  For that time you could say that this was the use of modern medical practice.  I also know that Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj also possessed modern weapons.  This tells us that our Guru was in favour of modern warfare as well as modern medical practices. So my question to you is why are you afraid of modern medicine and why are you on the path to making a ritual of preserving something that was used for specific scenarios of the time. 
    • Who cares when Sukha works and the pharma kills you. At the least reefer madness kids didn't judge you as you died? I've never heard or seen Sukha exacerbate anyone's schizophrenia and infact the schizophrenics I worked with were taking oral cbd solution three times daily.   Have you ever read the known side effects of pharma?
