This website rips images of other websites and then claims them as there own in order to sell, the product you receive is NOT what you ordered as it is a cheaper, copied version, when you receive your goods look CAREFULLY at the image on the website and you will notice little details which are just wrong on the garment you have, bargello will claims that its due to the lighting when the pic was takn etc, etc.

Please see http://www.paklinks.com/gs/bazaar-talk/249131-bargello-com-my-worst-experience-6.html for further instances of bad experiences people have had.

Bargello copy images form the likes of sublime by sara and many more, they simply blur out the background.

It very True they lift pictures from all the designers of Pakistan, India and even UK and USA websites as well. Disgrace !!! They have no shame at all to cheat and mislead clients all over the world. Every body should discourage this practice and not to buy from such web sites.

NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM BARGELLO.COM! THEY ARE THE WORSE! I ordered an outfit for my engagement and it looked NOTHING like the website. It was so cheap and tacky. They charged me $700 for a salwar kameez that could not have been worth more than $150. It guaranteed antique work with diamantes, swarovskis, naqshi, etc and all i got was an outfit in the wrong color with a bunch of plastic shiny beads that looked like soemthing you'd pick up in an indian grocery store. Plus, I had told them I wanted to long trousers and even indicated the length and tehy sent me cropped trousers. My engagement is in less than a month and i have nothing to wear! I am IRATE!! Never ever ever give that ridiculouse establishment 1$ of your money!

Last summer I saw a sari by Atelier Karma and had to have it but I didn't know where to buy it from since I live in Montreal and the showrooms are thousands of miles away in Pakistan. When I tried to order it through Karma's site, there were so may delays in responding.

Then I discovered Bargello. They were fast in responding, their prices were reasonable and they could modify anything you wanted. The way Bargello works is that it is a distribution company that takes the orders that you make and replicates them according to the designers styles. Most of the designers do not have the time to take online orders but Bargello specializes in oversea orders.

However, I have recently noticed that a lot of designer sites are improving their online order applications, making it easier to buy outfits online.

Some of the styles they have made themselves but most of them are replications of Pakistani and Indian designers. I had my sari made exactly like the original image I saw and delivered to my doorstep.

The actual sari is a halter blouse that is fully worked. The work is a combination of encrusted pearls, crystals and bead work that essentially makes up the floral design on the blouse.

The sari is a sarong style sari meaning that it does not have the traditional eight pleats rather it follows a Grecian look where material is gathered at the waist and falls reassembling a cascade.

The sarong is made of pure silk and has scattered pearls and crystals throughout the entire fabric.

Dear Maseeha
Pls take my advise and don't purchase any from bargello.com. I bought my wedding saree from them in Feb and it turns up disaster. I paid MYR 3080++ for this saree and ended up received ### !!!...I am soooooooooo disappointed with bargello...never ever trust them. Ended up I had to spend another MYR1800 in another saree for my wedding day. This one i got it from SriLanka, best friend of mine travelled all the way down to Malaysia just to deliver my wedding saree to me on time and it was so gorgeous. I made a biggest mistake by buying from bargello and till now i am still figuring ways to sue them for whatever nonsense they did to my wedding saree!!! You can find the exact type in India or Srilanka, trust me...

Dear all,
i received 2 dresses from Bargello that look as bad as it could get . The fabric, the colors, the fit, the seams, the cheap look, it is horrible . I claimed and they have all sorts of excuses, and now that i looked for Bargello complaints i see that this is how they usually work, they show pictures of beautiful dresses, charge couture prices and ship dresses that you can only wear in Carnival, if you want to look like the rich clown . It is the first time i have such a problem with internet buying and i do not know what to do, except to feel completely stupid.

Hi Guys,

I am bought some custom designs Bargello.com customer and I never received any low quality in fabric and material even in design, they had made pattern for my custom outfit and sent me a photo via email.

I was more satisfied and like their service because it helped me to clear all my confusions.

I received my saree two days ago. It is extremely beautiful, far more than what is shown in the picture. The craftsmanship is really superb. The item was very well packaged as well. Your service is really excellent. Thank you very very much.

I would just like to make people aware NOT to buy from this website, they are an absolute con. I purchased a sherwani after looking through the pictures, and I must say that on their website it really does look like the real deal, however when it arrives I’m afraid it’s a whole different story. The outfit was purely unfit for purpose the stitching was terrible, I mean I have never sewn in my life and I’m pretty sure I could have done a better job. The shoulder pads were extended beyond the shoulder seem, the lining that is attached to the sleeves and joined at the shoulder seem was absolutely terrible and they even managed to get the color on the embroidery wrong, over all it was very tacky and very poor quality. I have called and emailed them numerous times and they are not happy to give me a refund even though it states in the ‘sales of goods act’ that if the product is not fit for purpose or does not meet your requirements then you have a right as a consumer to get a full refund.
The battle is still going on and I am getting solicitors and trading standards involved, so let’s hope that this website and the croneys that are running it get closed down and sent down for robbing people!

Very dissatisfied customer...

I have found a similar website that is MUCH CHEAPER and with high quality fabric ( silk, velvet, hand embroidered with stones etc) I have bought from them several times because the prices are the lowest I can find on the internet and they give out free shipping and stitching which most websites dont do. Check out www.gujaratidresses.com

Items also match what is in the picture unlike this bargello.
