Indian Closet Organization Tips


India is rich in culture and fashion. There are so many beautiful ethnic wears for different occasions. Sometimes it can be difficult to decide what outfit to put on certain occasions especially if you don’t have an organized closet. One other problem you face with these beautiful outfits is knowing how to store them.

It is quite difficult to organize sarees and suits in your closet because you have to be careful that the fabric is protected. If you don’t arrange them properly, they will take up so much space, and there won’t be room for any of your other clothes. To avoid this problem, we will show you how to organize your Indian clothes in your closet.


The first step to organizing your closet is getting rid of clothes you no longer need just go through your treehouse ideas and it will help you get more space.  It could be clothes that do not fit or have worn out. You should decide on what you want to do with these clothes. If they no longer fit, you can pass them on to your family or even sell them. Most people prefer to donate it to those who need them.

Separate Clothes

If you have a pile of large clothes, they will probably take up most of the space. What would you do with others? It becomes imperative that you have to separate these clothes. You can sort them out according to occasions or events. This way you can arrange wedding clothes in a section, and create another section for other casual wear. You can also separate heavy and delicate fabrics into different sections. Another way of sorting will be to keep sarees and suits in see-through bags where they won’t be damaged. You can also label your shelves, so it’s easier to pick out outfits.

 Protect Your Dupattas

Dupattas are a favorite among females, and you hardly find an Indian girl without a dupatta. The problem with this outfit is that you can’t easily fold them up as you would do to a t-shirt. They are intricate and will need to be handled with care. You will need shower curtain rings to loop the dupattas. Then you’ll suspend them with a hanger just like you hang plants or shrubs in indoor plant hangers. You can also use a scarf holder for the same application. When you store your dupattas this way, you can easily reach them, and they won’t be wrinkled.

Kurtas, Sherwanis, Skirts, and Lehengas

You can’t fold the lehengas and skirts in your closet, you will need hangers for them. If you fold the lehengas and skirts, the beads on them will get hooked to the thread of your other clothes.

The same for outfits like sherwanis, you can store these wedding outfits safely when hanged. Sherwanis, especially formal ones, must be stored carefully to keep it from being damaged. Now, if you don’t have a sherwani yet, it’s one of the staples of Indian men’s ethnic wear. I found a great assortment of sherwanis on Nihal Fashions you can check out.

Organizing Saree Blouses

Expensive clothes, like your saree blouses should be kept properly. You can get see-through bags for them, or better yet, wrap them in muslin to avoid any damage in your closet. The muslin material will protect the sequins and embroidery on the saree blouses. It will also keep dust from the cloth and other things that will cause your saree to wear out.
