It might be an overlooked trade, but it certainly generates income for most families on Viti Levu.

As back to school shopping continues, the demand for school uniforms has tailors working overtime to meet demand.

Sunila Singh, owner of Sunila’s Ladies Tailors at Cumming Street, Suva, said the demand for uniforms had increased this year.

“I have a lot of customers coming in every day for uniform orders,” she said.

“I found the start of this year very busy and I’m so happy that my business is going really well.”

She charges $12 for primary school uniforms and $15 for children in secondary school.

On the other hand, Nisha of Nisha Ladies Tailors of Marks Street said they sew the uniform for any school.

“My business has not gone well since most parents prefer to buy ready-made uniforms from other shops for their children,” she said.

“I sell primary school uniforms for $8 and secondary ones for $10,

“I receive about six customers per day,” Mrs Nisha said.

School starts next Tuesday.
