With the start of the holy month of Ramadan, the majority of men’s tailors in the Kingdom were seen overcharging their visiting customers and they have since ceased taking new orders as demand surges for Eid-ul-Fitr.

Due to the abundance and extremely high volume of requests they received over the previous five days, many marketplaces in Manama and Muharraq closed their doors to any requests for tailoring dresses.

Our sister paper, Al Ayam, reported that demands for Eid tailoring had already started to come in during the month of Sha’ban as people flocked in advance to secure a date for making the attire.

Depending on the various types of cloth and embroidery used, the cost to tailor a single outfit might range from BD14 or more. Due to a shortage of employees and a large volume of orders, many tailors believe that this year’s turnout is exceptionally high and many have stopped accepting new orders since the beginning of Ramadan.

Despite the fact that Japanese fabric and Kuwaiti clothing are the most popular, the majority of locals prefer to have their Eid dresses tailored in white or beige, which adds a distinct air of elegance.
