Not Your Typical Indian Fashion Business
On behalf of all of us here at Pardesi Fashions we would like to welcome you to
our site. We hope that you will find the time to look around our sites and that
we will get the opportunity to serve you. It is our goal that this page will
give our visitors and customers a better idea of who we are and what we do.
Who is Pardesi?
Pardesi is an ancient Hindi word which translates poetically to “from another
land”. Our items come exclusively from India. They bring a little taste of home
to Indian families living abroad and a taste of the exotic to our global
customers. Pardesi Fashions is owned and operated by Pardesi Services, LLC. We
are licensed by the state of New Hampshire and are a licensed exporter by the
government of India.
Several years ago, the owner of Pardesi Fashions noticed that the choices of
salwar kameez, saree and lengha choli for women living in the USA were very
limited in designs, quality and size. Basically, if you were not a woman of a
certain height and a weight it was even harder to find anything that fit.
Furthermore, after one or two washings these items were literally falling apart
at the seams. This was disappointing since the cost of these items were
Pardesi Fashions was launched in 1999. We specialize in offering high quality
salwar kameez and Indian fashions at a fair price for all sizes. We operate at
wholesale costs to ensure that our customers are given the best selection
combining style, affordability, and comfort.
How Are We Different?
Our Customers are #1:
Almost 100% of our customers return to shop with us. From beginning to end, we
hope that your every experience with us will bring you back to us.
Personalized Attention: We offer personalized attention to every customer
who needs it. You will always receive a prompt and courteous response to your
questions and concerns. We have been told through the years that we have the
“best customer service on the web!” We will always try to live up to this.
You Get What You Order: Unlike many internet or eBay based businesses we
do not substitute without your approval. We will never give you something else
just because we did not have what you wanted in stock and then leave you
holding the unwanted item.
Plus Sizes Are Our Specialty: Indian fashion has no concept of plus size
fashion as it is known in the USA and abroad. Women get their clothing custom made in India
or buy "free-size" which fits up to a size 10 US. Unlike many of the Indian
Fashion companies offering plus size, we do not simply add extra inches here
and there. We have done extensive research with our plus size customers to
ensure that we understand plus size proportions. We were the first to offer
plus size salwar kameez and Indian fashion in the USA and though we are often
imitated, no one ever comes close to our standards.
- Custom Stitching: We offer you the option of having your salwar
kameez suit custom made to your specific measurements at no additional charge
or you can select one of our many preset sizes.
Education: It is our pleasure and honor to help promote
cultural education and understanding. With this in mind, our websites offer numerous
articles about the history and culture of India. Due to their well researched
and accurate content, our articles have been used in classrooms around the
world and cited in numerous papers, thesis and documentaries.
Indian Adoption Cultural Pages: We at Pardesi Services feel that families who
adopt Indian children are very special. In the near future we plan on adding a
special section just for these families. In the meantime, we may be contacted
by email to answer any questions you might have about the culture or traditions
of India. We also urge you to visit our Community pages where you can post anonymously
and read others’ posts about cross-cultural parenting and adoption.
