There’s a pivotal moment in the life of every South Asian that, in the eyes of our parents, officially marks our transition into adulthood. It’s not when you turn 18. Not when you become financially independent. DEFINITELY not when you get married or have kids. 


No. The moment that *truly* marks your passage into adulthood is when your parents give you everything you’ve ever left in their house.


Diplomas. Old sweaters. Childhood books. When you get these crinkled, aged, musty possessions back, your parents are officially acknowledging that you are, at long last, an adult.

Along with all of your childhood possessions getting dumped at your doorstep comes your South Asian wardrobe. Western parents reclaim old bedrooms to make home gyms. South Asian parents reclaim closets to hoard a year’s supply of dal and atta (flour).  


Now you’re left to face a new dilemma: how are you going to store your lehengas, saris and suits?! Do it with garment bags, boxes, and sari sleeves.


These are perfect for your fancy clothes because A) they protect your nicer formal wear from discoloration and damage, and B) they help compress bulky clothes and preserve closet space for everything else you’ve thrown in there (*clears throat* shoes). 


Enjoy your official foray into adulthood with this roundup of storage options for your South Asian wardrobe.
