Tunics & Kurtis, shipped from inside the US?
May 4, 2014 8:44 PM   Subscribe

I'm a bit obsessed with women's tunics at the moment. Especially ones that have a semi-Indian look. Metafilter is so great at finding amazing clothing resources and I wondered if anyone has a good source for tunics or kurtis shipped from inside the United States? (I'm concerned about customs or courier fees for items shipped from other countries.) Thanks for any leads!

Where are you located? Where I live (Bay Area) there are abundant Indian clothing stores to buy from directly...if you're in a city, maybe there are some near you. In Berkeley, there's a stretch of a few blocks filled with sari stores. (Unfortunately it doesn't look like any of them have websites, at first glance...)

Best answer: How about Marketplace of India? Their products are made by cooperatives in India but it's mail order in the US so no issues with importing. These are semi-westernized versions but lots of tunics.

I have ordered from Fabindia, which ships direct from India, with zero customs issues. Nice quality, reasonable prices, and things have gotten to me in less than 2 weeks, which I thought was pretty good. Sizing does run small, I will say, but many of the men's kurtas are not so manly that a lady couldn't wear them also. Shipping is free for orders over $100 US.

Best answer: I have a few beautiful kurtas from Islamic Outfitters. They always seem to have sales going on. Pretty sure they were based out of the US.
