If you are a sewer or just like beautiful fabrics this is the place to go. I have never seen so many colours and designs in fabric. Love to go and browse through the shops.

100% PURE SILK! Wonderful SILK! So much to choose from...outstanding designs, colors, textures...at least 100 of silk alone! I was in heaven! Gurmail (aka G-mail) and his brother were so kind and helpful...and never pushy. They even shared their wifi so I could download a picture onto my phone so we could figure out how much material I needed for... More

Wandering along Arab Street, I discovered this shop by accident. Beautiful silk scarves, but less ready made clothes. My daughter and I bought silk scarves, and we managed to bargain and got our scarves for a very reasonable, price. We were then told that there was also another shop, a little further on Arab street, where I might find silk... More

Read about this shop on Trip Advisor a while ago and have sent my family who live in Singapore to buy fabrics for me when they return to SA for a holiday. We were in Singapore this week and so I went in myself and was pleasantly surprised by the soft sell approach of the owner. He happily gave me... More

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.

I was looking for fabric stores in the area and this was the top rated according TripAdvidsor search for "silk shops". It was a galore of silk fabrics. 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
