Khulna tailors passing busy hours

STAFF REPORTER, Khulna

Tailors of Khulna are passing busy time for making dresses of ladies, gents, youths, boys and girls for delivering those before the Eid day.
Affluent buyers pass their Eid festival in merriment wearing the dresses, but the makers who forsake their happiness to process these dresses become happy to some extent at the advent of Eid. This year tailors of Khulna are happy to get good wage.
It is learnt, proprietors of the shops are not taking order of making dresses of customers as they will not be able to deliver those before Eid. Most of the customers are disappointed to order their shirts, pants, Panjabi and pajamas for celebrating Eid.
The proprietors of well established tailoring shops said, “We usually take orders up to 15th Ramzan. But, immense pressure from customers’ end sometimes compels us to take orders even in the last stage.”
Bashudeb Saha, proprietor of ‘Shital Tailors’, said he had 30 workers for making dresses but at present 16 workers are working. They are working day and night to deliver all dresses before Eid.
He said, “On the occasion of holy Eid, a good number of men rushed to their favourite tailors for making shirts and pants with good fitting.” “We are charging Tk 350 for making a pant and Tk 250 for a shirt,” Bashudeb also said.
Alamgir Hossain, a Khulna Medical College Hospital staff, went to ‘Student Tailors’ and asked the proprietor to make a full pant for him but he refused to make it. On the other hand, readymade garments are ruling in men’s and kids’ collections as usual. But unstitched cloths still enjoy a high demand among women despite there are so many boutique and fashion houses offering readymade clothes.
While visiting factories of different tailoring shops at Dak bungalow and Railway Hawkers Market area in the city it was found that the workers were having very busy time in sewing, pressing and packaging garments.
Uttam Kumar Das, a worker (sewing-man) of ‘Sun-moon Tailors’ said, “Their time schedule changes before each Eid for which they cannot give time to their families. By sleeping only 4-5 hours a day, they engage themselves in their daily routine of processing dresses for customers.”
We have to work from 10am in the morning to till 4am at night (about 16 hours) restlessly to meet the Eid demand. His wife and children live at Chanmari area of Labonchara thana, but he cannot visit them due to work limitations. Another tailor named Kamal Uddin said he has to sew at least five to six pants a day and for that he has to work for extra hours. Generally they earn Tk 250 to Tk 350 per day. Now they are earning Tk 500 to Tk 700 per day. “My target is to earn Tk 15,000 this month to go to my village. This is the peak season for us to earn some extra money, so we don’t mind working for extra time,” he added.
Afroza Parveen, a mother of two from Musgunni Residential Area in the city said, “I usually buy unstitched clothes after first Ramzan to avoid the last–minute rush at both the fabric stores and tailoring shops. I did most of my shopping from Khulna Shopping Complex, Jalil Tower and Meena Bazar, Khulna unit.”
Mahjabeen, a student of Khulna University has placed order in an embroidery house at Sir Iqbal Road’s shop and said, “I preferred embroidered Shalwar-Kameeze with the design of my choice to keep my outfit exclusive.”
Initially most of the well established tailoring shops were taking stitching charge of Tk 150-200 per Kameez set, but with the Eid getting nearer they would go for a sharp hike of stitching charge.
