What is the average income of a tailor in India?

Are you thinking of becoming a tailor? Or are you already a tailor and want to know how much you can earn?

How Much a Tailor Earns in India?

Tailoring is a skilled trade, and the average tailor in India earns a decent wage. However, many factors can affect how much a tailor earns, such as experience, location, and type of work. An average tailor in your locality can earn from 20k to a few lakhs INR monthly based on the location, skill sets and competition in the locality. The income also varies based on the time and month of the year. During Durga Puja in West Bengal, especially in Kolkata, few tailors get orders up to a value of a few lakhs. Those tailors outsource their orders to workers with lower wages. 

Earning in Other Tailoring Profession

Apart from being a tailor, many tailoring occupations exist in the industry. If you follow our Facebook page, there are many Job offers for Sewing Machine Operators(SMO) whose starting salary varies from 8k to 20k INR. Many small or medium-sized garment companies or furniture companies build sofas, curtains etc., where they need sewing machine operators. Apart from that, there are requirements for apparel designers in small or medium-sized boutiques where the salary is higher than SMO.

Earn by Opening Your Own Business

Suppose you want to start your own business and do not have any capital in hand. In that case, we recommend completing a basic tailoring course and getting hired by any garment company or boutique where you will get industry-level experience. You will also get the chance to save some money from your salary. After getting one or two years of valuable experience, you can open your boutique with the capital you have saved. Starting a tailoring business is easy in the digital era, where you have social media and other channels to market your product or service. Disha Fashion Institute provides all the necessary guidance and assistance to market your product or service online.

Can I learn tailoring online?

You can learn tailoring online. Tailoring skills can easily be learned sitting at home. 

This is an excellent option for those who don't have the time or money to attend the tailoring class physically. Also, those not living in Kolkata cannot visit the school physically. It was a widespread belief that tailoring could not be learned online. We get many queries asking whether tailoring can be learned online. The good news is that, yes, you can learn tailoring online! There are plenty of resources available that can help you hone your skills.

Our Journey of Online Tailoring Classes

We started our journey of online tailoring classes during the Covid. Covid taught us many things. When we started this in 2020, we were unsure whether this initiative would succeed or fail. But, with time, this has been proved to be a bigger success than our physical classroom training. There are plenty of students from all parts of India who join our online tailoring classes and enroll in basic tailoring courses, advanced tailoring courses, fashion designing, and textile designing courses. You can check the Google reviews by our online students. Those reviews testify to our successful journey as an online basic to advanced tailoring course provider.

Hands-On Machine Operations

It is crucial to remember that the hands-on aspect of operating a sewing machine cannot be entirely taught through online classes. However, our classes focus on imparting crucial knowledge such as the cutting process, measurements, and calculations. This approach gives students a clear understanding of how to cut fabric properly and where to sew it. We recommend that if you purchase a Usha or Singer sewing machine, you take advantage of the machine demo offered by Usha or Singer representatives. This will allow you to receive a personalized, in-depth demonstration of the machine's operation and capabilities.

How did tailoring emerge as a means for woman empowerment in India?

Tailoring can be a lucrative and empowering occupation for women in India, as it allows them to work from home and have flexible hours, which is especially important for women with families. Many women who take up tailoring have been able to increase their income and improve their financial independence. The following video explains how Disha Fashion Institute supports many women who want to pursue tailoring as a career and have been able to make a significant impact on their communities.

How much does it cost to learn tailoring?

Are you interested in learning how to tailor clothes and start your own boutique or tailoring shop? You may be wondering about the cost of completing a basic tailoring course.

Course Fee

Disha Fashion Institute offers a basic tailoring course for only 700/- per month, making it a reasonable option compared to other institutions. If you're looking for a certificate, it will cost an additional 1500/- examination and certification fee at the end of the course. This certificate may be necessary if you're seeking a tailoring job in a manufacturing company, fashion house, or government enterprise. However, if you're only seeking knowledge to set up your own business, you can skip the certification.

Cost of Fabric and Other Tailoring Tools

Apart from the course fee, you'll need to buy cotton fabric for practice and some tailoring tools which can be bought from our school. The fabric cost is high, but you can use your old cotton clothes for practice, and while learning, you'll be making clothes for yourself and your family members, which saves on buying new clothes. The major cost for learning tailoring is buying a tailoring machine. The cost of a machine can vary greatly depending on the type of machine and its features. It's important to buy a machine based on your actual needs and not overspend on a machine with features you won't use. If you already have an iron base sewing machine, you can fit a motor for heavy use instead of buying a new machine. There are many aspects to consider before buying a machine, and we're here to help you make the best choice. So, if you're interested in pursuing a career in tailoring, we encourage you to join our basic tailoring course at Disha Fashion Institute.

With a reasonable course fee and proper guidance from our experts, you can gain valuable skills to start your own tailoring business and achieve financial independence.
