I purchased silk fabric at this shop. They were very helpful and friendly. I also purchased a wonderful wrap around skirt. I recommend if on Arab Street on Singapore to visit them.

Sought out this shop based on reviews on TA. Soooo glad we did. They have the best range and quality of silk I have ever seen and the owner was delightful - absolutely no pressure and very honest. He showed us how to tell the difference between real silk and imitations and he was also honest enough to explain why... More

Having shopped here almost 2 years ago, and being very happy with the quality of fabric I purchased for curtains and for covering chairs, I returned recently, on a stopover visit to Singapore. I have bought 3 types of silk fabric for recovering of dining room chairs and recovering feature lounge chairs ... such a relief to be helped quietly... More

The most original, creative and valuable silk in Singapore + wool and cachemere. Buy with confidence, they will eventually address you to the best taylors in town to make whatever you want out of these fabulous fabrics.

Having read some of the other reviews I thought I would take the opportunity to check out this shop. I was not disappointed. The assistants were friendly and not pushy which makes the whole browsing and buying experience pleasurable. The raw silk is better quality than most as it is 3 ply and at $25 a meter compares favourably to... More

Excellent service, not pushy, if you know your fabrics they show you all the new ones fresh on the market. Great people. I bought raw silk @ $25/m, didn't bargain as I had checked the price in other shops...$28 and upwards. Going back tomorrow.

I was able to walk to Arab Street from motel and found this store easily. The knowledge of the staff and their willingness to help was amazing. They also send fabric to Australia, great for future purchases.

Fantastic shop in the heart of old Singapore, run by a wonderful, friendly family. Came in several times while visiting Singapore a few years ago to buy some material for quilting, and the mother and son team were very kind and patient, allowing me to buy many quite small lengths - as the secret of patchwork is many different fabrics...
