Islamic dress business is growing - despite growing calls to ban the burqa


An Australian hijab maker says business is growing despite negative publicity from politicians calling for a ban on the burqa.

Sydney fashion exporter 'Hijab House' says he wishes Australians were 'proud of the work we do', adding it confounded stereotypes about Muslims by hiring multi-faith staff.

However, Hijab House director Tarik Houchar said the multi-million dollar company's sales were continuing to grow.

'Sales of hijabs are independent of rhetoric from politicians like Jacqui Lambie and Pauline, but are very strong regardless as Muslim fashion is a growing industry,' he told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday.
