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

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.

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
