    Does anyone know the difference between, full voile / half voile, mal mal and rubia and other turban clothes. Are there any differences? I am quite not sure. I want to tie a dhumalla regualry, so which material you will recommend, and which material you will recommend for pagh?

    It would be great if someone with knowledge would make a list.

    Half width Malmal cloth is best for Dumalla.

    Full voile is great material. Its really light,soft and thin so makes it really easy to tie and looks great. This is the best one for me.

    So its up to individual choice? Mhh, I am quite confused now, Baljeet ji is saying opposite of Kanwaljit ji , lol. Is mal mal thinner than voil, or is it just more elastic? Some one help, please ! I am tying my turban with a very thick cloth like old uncles do, but I am not happy with this ^^

    I think Malmal is the cloth Parnas (given as Saropas in Gurudwara) are made up of. They are probably the thinner ones. Voil is the thin cloth for Patiala style turbans. At any shop you can ask for all 3 and check out for yourself. You can also ask the shop owner to give you the softer one.

    As Kanwaljit veer ji says, it will give you a much better idea when you see it for yourself...
    Let us know which one you chose :sippingcoffeemunda:

    Thanks you both, but I think thats the problem! Here is no local Sikh shop :S That´s why i asked the question. I ordered some Turans via sardarpagrihouse, hope they will come soon. Then I can make a decision myself.

    Oh then you can be in a sticky situation :D It is never a good buy from online, for Singhs better to visit the shop and check out things by hand.

    Tigerstlez ji don't worry. Ambarsaria's are generally good people unless you are shopping in "Jhootha Bazaar/False Mall" in Amritsar versus "Hall Bazaar/Main MAll". I believe your stuff is coming from Hall Bazaar.

    Leave feedback on your experience. It possibly will also help others.

    A bit late but for future reference we also offer Dastaars at www.SikhiStore.com.

    And basic difference between the different fabrics is that Rubia has dense weaving, Full Voile has light weaving and Mal- Mal has very fine and very light weaving.

    SikhiStore veer ji it does not cost much to support SPN and have your banner at the top just like JSKS from India. May be you should consider it.

    Thanks for your helpful post and welcome to spn.

    I bought two turban cloths on line from Pagrihouse. Both were rubia, and I now have one in voile as well (a gift from a dear friend). I was very happy with the quality of the merchandise and the friendly service. As for the duty charges I had to pay ... that's another story!

    Now, if I could only find someone to teach me how to do a good point-to-point puni, which is the essential first skill to learn if you want your dastaar to come out right. I've seen a couple of Youtube videos, but none really does the job.

    Any volunteers out there?

    Awakeaned Singh, thanks or your post. Mhh, you know that Rubia is more dificulte to tie? I don´t think you have watched whole Youtube videos, there are many that show how you can tie puni as well. I wish I could help but I am not that good in tying Paghs. Another Question does anyone know how to tie this Impressive Dhumalla from Sukhdev Singh Babbar? Tutorial and lenght of Material (kapra ) or Something would be very helpful!

    You just need to start tying. Best is to have a long double parna to cover your hair and 15 metres of malmal dumalla cloth min.

    Sat sri akaal

    I know we are discussing turban cloth here.

    I need some recommendation on sites available that give detailed information on How to tie different styles of turban along with what lengths/material are required.
