About Us

We are two friends, Tej Randeva and Nurdeep Chhokar, who came up with the idea for Desibay during a family holiday in Dubai in 2019. 

 

From experience, we both knew just how costly and time-consuming shopping for special occasions like weddings and parties could be. And that, within the Asian community, formal outfits are rarely worn to more than one or two events. So, we started wondering about what happens to all those old saris, suits and kurtis that have been cast aside. At the same time, Nurdeep was dreaming of starting her own business, keen to make her mark on the right project. With that, a new type of online marketplace was born. 

 

With Desibay, we have created the first online platform for the buying and selling of Asian and desi items. So if you’re looking for a show-stopping outfit that won’t break the bank, it’s the place to go. Meanwhile, if your wardrobes are bursting with clothes that you’ll never wear again, why not recoup some of the costs by selling them on?

 

We have built Desibay to appeal to everyone - not just those within the Asian community. So if you’re looking to buy or sell anything from designer clothing to homeware, gadgets and everything in between, you can find it in just a few clicks. 

 

Keen to fill this gap in the market, we spent many months developing the perfect platform: simple, accessible, and - most of all - free to use. But the final push came when the world shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic. With people across the country confined to their homes, they were looking for a new way to shop and trade – and so we launched Desibay as the perfect solution. Now, as we move forwards from the crisis, we hope that our marketplace will continue to support our community for many years to come.

Desibay is such a great app and good concept. So easy to use compared to other apps I have used in the past. So glad that there is now this app for the ‘desi’ community to sell and buy items.

Great App and so easy to use. So pleased that there is now a one-stop app where you can sell Asian and non-Asian products. Always struggled with selling my Asian products before as there wasn’t a dedicated site. I have uploaded some products very easily via my phone and have already had interest and offers. Couldn’t be anymore easier. Looking forward to uploading and selling more items.

Have to say this is a brilliant app and very easy to use. It is very user friendly I was about to upload my items to sell within minutes. This is a excellent site and was much needed. Especially to sell on your preloved items, I cannot think of an another marketplace which also caters for Asian outfits and the Asian market. Will definitely be uploading more items on here. Love love love 😉

I’ve had only good experience with Desibay so far, selling and buying. It’s free and easy to use. During this COVID-19 I was amazed that the buyer arranged a pick up from the location. Thank you Desibay you have brought in a little wanted cash at a very important time.
