I know some of you adore the Turkish look…
Two great sites to peruse are HijabPlanet and E-Tesettur, both are based in Turkey. I’ve mentioned them both before…HijabPlanet is great for their wide selection of exquisite silk scarves and E-Tesettur is great for their wide selection of authentic Turkish overgarments called ” Pardesü” or “mantoo”. Both are great sites and ship quickly. Mash’Allah.
HijabPlanet is currently having their annual Winter Sale…great way to get a good price on a lovely silk scarf!
Here are a few silk scarves which I personally like…as you can see I have a think for florals!
E-Tesettur has a great and wide selection of pardesü and some come in sizes that are generally hard to find, which is great news for plus-sized sisters! Frankly…I really their selection, mash’Allah and they have an Outlet section and occasional sales on pardesü and actually, overall the prices of a quality, brand name pardesu ends up being rather reasonable and shipping to the US is around $27 via EMS for 1 pardesü! Only downside is they don’t have a English ordering page so you have to wing it with Google Translate and must pay via PayPal if your outside of Turkey. They speak English though and will get back to you if you contact them.
Here are a few Pardesü which I think look really lovely and quite everyday wearable! Most are ankle length, a few are 3/4th and knee length which would look lovely with those extra-wide legged pants they carry or a swishy skirt!
An Abaya-esque mantoo!
This knee length mantoo would look nice with a pair of brown, ultra-wide, modest pants or a straight brown skirt!
What did you think about the pardesu styles I just shared? What aspects of Turkish mohajabat fashion (tesettur) do you like and don’t like?
