About UmaSareesChicago

Sales 19
On Etsy since 2020

Silks, Chiffons, Cottons...Oh My!

Uma's parents started this business as a beauty supply shop in Hong Kong after they left India post-partition in the late 40s/early 50s. From there they immigrated to the US and landed in Queens, NY. There Uma Sarees was born. Uma was the youngest of 5 daughters at the time and so it was named after her. The first Indian Fashion store in America!

Uma grew up, as most people do, and moved to Chicago with her husband, Om and their new born daughter Nina in 1973. They started their business out of their apartment with a starter set of 5 sarees.
Eventually, as demand and supply increased, they opened their first location on Devon Ave., now known as Little India. Same street, but a few locations later, they're still there almost 50 years later! :-D

    A mechanical engineer by trade, Om left his career to work beside Uma to help grow the business and their two darling daughters. If you've ever visited their store in the 80s, you've met these daughters and understand why LOL.
