Hydara Fabrics - Blog

Our History September 14, 2015 00:30

Hydara Fabrics has been in business for over 15 years. Where and How have we started? Continue reading to find out.

Before we had a physical location, founder Mohamed Hydara traveled to several countries and cities in Europe and Asia, including London, Thailand, Hong-Kong, Switzerland, to purchase merchandise for reselling. With the help of his wife, they traveled to the homes of their customers to showcase their products. Or their customers sometimes came to their house.

In 2001, Hydara Fabrics opened its first store location on Grand Concourse and 182nd street in the Bronx. A few years later, it moved to 182nd and Valentine, before coming to its current location at 184th street and Grand Concourse.

Earlier this year, Hydara Fabrics decided to create an online presence in order to serve customers outside of the Bronx and New York City. Mr. Hydara sought the help of his eldest daughter, Fatuma, to start up and maintain the online website. As a recent college graduate and current teacher, she used her technological skills to aid the family business. 

Now, Hydara Fabrics is looking forward to continuing to serve both old and new customers as the number one place for affordable, African fashions.

What Makes Hydara Fabrics Different? August 22, 2015 21:33

There are countless options in your hometown, state, and online for finding African fabrics, wax prints (ankara), gold-plated jewelry, and head ties.

Yet, this is what we offer:

1. Personalized Customer Service: when you contact Hydara Fabrics on social media, live chat, email, or phone, you are speaking to one of two people--the founder Mohamed Hydara, or his daughter, Fatuma Hydara. This means that your questions or concerns will never be brushed aside and taking care of you is our biggest priority.

2. Free Shipping: We understand that often shipping fees can startle customers. To make your online shopping as simply as possible, shipping with the US is free and tax is included. The price you see is the price on our site is the price you'll pay. No surprises during checkout.

3. Love: We love what we do and what we sell to our customers. Every item added to inventory was painstakingly chosen and something we considered beautiful, lovely, or cute.
