I just wanted some silk for some craft work. The two brothers at this shop were very helpful in determining what was best for my project. They even took a loss, in that they offered remnants at a discount price instead of trying to sell me a higher end product. Great customer service and honest advise. Going back here next... More

I have been patronizing this shop for the last 5 years and have never been disappointed with their excellent service and product knowledge. The family and staff are very welcoming. They have a very wide selection of authentic silk.

Only if I had more time to go through, touch and feel all the lovely fabrics they had for a more full experience. Their prices were much better than the others on... More

I sought out this shop amongst the dozens on Arab street because of the rave reviews here. I went in expecting excellent service, and that is what I got. I picked out a couple of cotton prints, and even though they seemed low thread count I took the woman's word that they had "just arrived from India" the day before.... More

Shopping here this morning was a delight. Young staff were knowledgeable, smiley and helpful without being 'pushy'. I was tempted to purchase lots of beautiful silks and offered advice as to how much I needed for the garment I described, a real pleasure to shop here.

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
