Finding clothes for newborns can be quite tricky, and finding the perfect ethnic wear is even trickier 😣 There are quite a few aspects to consider when purchasing an Indian costume for little ones, including fabric, comfort and model. 

To ease your outfit hunting for those special occasions, we’ve curated the best 4 shops to purchase Indian ethnic wear for newborns in Singapore 🇸🇬 

  1. Nimbu 

If you want the comfort of online shopping coupled with the high quality products suitable for Singapore’s hot and humid weather, Nimbu’s definitely for you! We have a variety of options for beautiful, comfortable & sustainable ethnic wear for kids ages 0-14. From pastel to vibrant colors, our carefully crafted collections will delight both kids and adults 🤩 If your babies like soft comfy fabric, go for the 100% cotton outfits. But, if you want some more splash of festivity, pick out the silk Kurtas, Lehengas & Saris. We even have matching outfits for mums and kids!

Whether its for Pongal, Onam, Ganesh Chaturthi, Holi, Deepavali or any other special occasion, having an Indian ethnic outfit on hand will be a great idea to avoid last-minute purchases. Another plus point for Nimbu is once your kids outgrow any outfit, you can return it in exchange for store credits! ♻️

  1. Little India

If you like conventional in-person shopping, Little India is the place to go. It’s hassle free since you can just grab and go! Feel free to check out Tekka market to support local small businesses and feel the fabric in person to ensure optimal comfort for your baby.

  1. Online shops based in India

An up and coming brand for Indian ethnic wear, TiberTaber provides outfits that are made in India for preemies to 12 year old kids. Their outfits are simple yet adorable, perfect for any traditional occasion! Besides using the outfits for weddings & events, you could also rewear & repurpose the outfits for photoshoots 👶🏻 A little mix & match is all you need! You can even check out Pinklay Kids, Fab India among others.

However, keep in mind to place your order in advance to receive the package just in time for your special day 🙈 Good news for TiberTaber fans, the brand will SOON be available on too so stay tuned! 

  1. Custom-Made

There’s nothing more authentic than an outfit handmade by tailors! Not only will the piece be exclusive, it will fit perfectly and you can get it to match with your outfit too. 😆 

If you want your outfit to be eco-friendly and sustainable, you could bring your own old fabric to restitch. This way, your little ones can relive memories in the same outfit you once wore, and build new memories. 😉

Good luck on your newborn outfit endeavors! 👋🏻 Thank us later 😉🍋
