Up until a few years ago Mehar Chand market was not only known for its tailors but also for the creative names some of the tailoring establishments had and their quirky slogans. It is estimated that there were once at least 75 tailors in this area, and some, as the sign indicates, could create wonders – whether it be in the making of new clothes, or mending old well-loved threads.

This year I only noticed one such tailor – OM Tailors. Though I only walked halfway up the market… perhaps there are a few more left – nestled amongst the newer upmarket fashion boutiques and quirky interiors stores.
