I was wondering whether any of you have recently ordered from East Essence and what your take has been about your order. I wonder if their quality has gotten any better since the last time I ordered from them?
…Argh…they are like those annoying chocolate muffins that coffee shops always stock…which beckons you to buy when you just came in for an iced Americano. LOL.
No, seriously…Ive ordered from them twice in the past, the first time was before we went to Saudi and their quality was atrocious…second time was last summer when I ordered their cotton twill Nahal abaya which as soon as I machine washed it (not dried…just machine washed) the thing shrunk 4 inches in length and went from a perfect fit to something which was better for a pre-adolescent girl and their Rayna abaya which came 1 inche shorter than I had ordered anyway and with very big, gaudy, cheapo buttons which ripped the fabric around it, in the first wearing. Also…it took like 3 weeks for me to even get my order.
but, I always run into sisters who always buy from them and have always liked everything they got. Also, they recently started using a lightweight koshibo for their polyester garments and Ive spoken to several sisters at the masjid who had on Amatullah abayaat in the new fabric and I honestly did like how they looked and how the material felt esp.compared to the old fabric.
So…hmmm…maybe they are decent if you dont buy a cotton garment which will invariably shrink like 4 inches…i don’t know. Can anyone share their recent experiences buying from them…has their quality improved?
