Sadak Ali&Brothers

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Pashmina wool shawls and scarves is one of the most sought after souvenirs taken home from India. They are abundantly available all across this huge country, yet fine quality pashmina items are not to be picked on any street corner. One has to be discerning enough to separate grains from chaff, both of which available in seemingly identical small street shops. The real spots, selling authentic pashminas are known only to trustworthy locals! One of such places is Sadak Ali & Brothers - a small store in the very heart of Mumbai Colaba area. It's situated in the very same place where the grandfather of its current owner Manzoor opened it in 1933 when he arrived in Mumbai from Kashmir. The entire history of the store is recorded in a large hand-written book that comprises names of royal houses and embassies of numerous countries across the world, to which Sadak Ali&Brothers delivered its pashmina. Probably you will become dizzy and confused from the vast variety of soft pashmina scarves piling up in shelves already after few minutes spent there. They are in every imaginable shade of every color and some are fluffy and feathery like down. Every item, commissioned by Mazoor family, is hand-woven in a small village in Kashmir. The principle of "affordable beauty" is in the basis of Sadak Ali & Brothers philosophy, and it means both friendly prices and value for money quality.
