    Top quality clothes made with top quality material made by top guys!!
    WOW - I am so impressed by the speed and level of quality these guys are working at. I came to them with a really tricky and specific design for a dress and they completely took it in their stride, took every note I gave, and presented me with the finished dress 24 hours later! Miracle workers! It’s such beautiful work and beautiful material, probably the best cotton I found on my travels in India. Im back in the UK but already planning on sending over more designs as I just love their work! And even better, they were just the loveliest guys! Can’t recommend highly enough, thank you Aji and the wonderful Asparagus team! X

    Beautiful people, beautiful work
    I am in love with the wrap skirt Aji and tailor Chandra just made from gorgeous cotton Khadi fabric and an internet photo. It fits perfectly and feels special. Such kind-hearted guys who care so much about their work and are a pleasure to be around. After sharing that I am a natural dye artist, Aji connected me with the person who dyes his fabric, and I had a most amazing experience visiting the production house (Ayurvastra, outside Trivandrum). Looking forward to coming again next year, maybe for a whole new wardrobe. <3

    Wish I had found them sooner!
    There are many tailors on the cliff, but head a little further and this is the ONLY one you should take your business to. Whether for bespoke, copies, or alterations, the workmanship at Asparagus is exceptional. Huge selection of silks, cottons, linens, block prints. Only wish I had found them sooner. Highly rate this wonderful tailors in Varkala.

Asparagus is an excellent shop. The quality of the fabrics and the skills of the tailor make it the best place in Varkala for clothing. In addition Aji’s English is excellent and so he is able to understand/interpret any alterations accurately. I highly recommend Asparagus.

The clothes that were made for me at Asparagus were beautiful, I had my favourite dress and favourite trousers replicated in organic cotton. I was also given the clothes in a beautiful handmade organic cotton bag. I am very happy with the tailoring, fit and final products! Beautiful clothes and beautiful fabric - thank you

The tailor made a shirt and trousers, the fit was perfect and just how we wanted it. They have a variety of very nice organic fabrics. The clothes were finished very soon also. All and all a very good experience!

Asparagus is by far the best tailors in Varkala - the care, the quality, the amazing materials, the service - they copied some Liberty's pyjamas in two beautiful block prints for my sister for Christmas, made me a wraparound skirt, two tunic button up tops and a little halter top for the sun - I would have got more made had I been there longer. The only tricky thing was what to decide. Everything about the experience was delightful - Aji gave me a very reasonable price and Chandra the tailor was a master at making alterations to make things even better. I feel thrilled and am in complete awe at the talented hands of India's tailors - I don't know how they do it, it really feels like magic.
