KARACHI: Nothing frustrates me more than going to see my tailor. Our former love/hate relationship has lately become a hate/die relationship.
He almost never gets my clothes right on the first go, rarely delivers on time and it takes every ounce of my patience to explain what I want for each suit. It’s a hassle and it’s the last thing one needs after a long, hard day at work.
With Eid relatively close by, I’m already shuddering to think about how many times I’m going to have to go down to his dingy shop.
When I stumbled upon the Facebook page for Darzi Express, I was beyond ecstatic; I thought this was the answer to all my stitching woes. Right?
Well, not quite!
Where it all started
Darzi Express is a home pick-up and delivery tailoring service — the first of its kind in the country.
“Growing up, my mother used to design clothes exclusively for a niche circle. We had these kaarigars operating out of our house so I’ve always had access to the manpower,” shares Muhammad Ahad, the brains behind Darzi Express.
