Our search for economical ready-made garments took us to one of Asia’s largest textile market–Gandhi Nagar. Truth be told, we weren’t expecting it to be this affordable. (INR 20 rupee clothes exist at a place other than SN Monday market!) Since Gandhi Nagar is mainly a wholesale market, an even bigger challenge was to find stores that sell less than 10 pieces.

After a long and hard day’s work, we managed to find five great stores offering the good, good stuff at ridiculously affordable prices.

Timings: 10 AM to 8 PM (Closed on Mondays)

How to Reach: The best way to reach here is via metro. 

Nearest Metro Station: Seelampur (Red Line)

Roshni Dupatta

Honestly, there’s probably not a colour or a particular material of dupatta that you won’t find in this store. From net dupattas in bright blues, greens and reds to cotton ones with mirror work and beads to even crumpled sherwani dupattas, it’d be an understatement to say that you’ll be spoilt for choice here. Another plus about Roshni Dupatta is that it’s right on the main road, so you won’t have to navigate your way through tiny lanes and hoards of people to give your dupatta collection a revamp.

Best part? The simple dupattas start at INR 20 per piece! Also, the max that a dupatta will cost here is around INR 130. 

Good Morning Shirts

The shelves in this store are full of tons of shirts in varied patterns and solid colours, all rolled into different bundles (or sets, as they’re called here). Each bundle is a set of either three or six shirts all in different sizes (S, M, L or XL).

We know it won’t make sense to buy different sizes for yourself, so it might actually be better to take your friends along and give shared shopping a shot here. Another option is that if you buy a set that’s priced relatively higher (INR 260/piece), you can get shirts that are only your size.

Vardhaman Garments

Another great store right on the main road, Vardhaman Garments has the largest collection of golden blouses we’ve ever come across. While a lot of them were too loud for our taste, we also found plain gold blouses with pretty cuts and doris on the back.  If, like us, you’re not a fan of bling, you’ll love the cream blouses with colorful Gujarati handiwork. Thankfully, this store’s more than happy to retail single pieces too, so the cream flower-embroidered blouse will cost you INR 250 (before bargaining).

If you’re buying two or more pieces and haggle well enough, you can hit the jackpot at this store, we think. 

Neelu Fashion

Denim for INR 250! Yes, you read that right, you will find some amazing wholesale shops here for jeans, and this one really caught our attention. They have a wide array of styles and patterns available, with a flexible size range, but you may have to buy at least five at once to grab everything at this prize. So, if you are looking to stock up on jeans at a very economical price, do check out this shop.

Guru Kripa Creations

From hoodies, and T-shirts to tanks and shirts, you can find some really good pieces here, at very minimal prices. This shop is a must-visit if you are looking to refresh your everyday wardrobe, and it has a really great size range as well. We also saw some khaki shirts and pants, and they were prized around INR 300! So, if that's something you are looking for, this place would be a good place to stop by.
