“Disgusting behaviour. Professional hawkers.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

The dishonesty of prices are outrageous. As someone said, "they hunt like a pack of dogs". I was circled by 6 women telling me this was high quality fabric and hence purchased it. They were relentless and more women appeared to support them. I found out it was cheap poor quality fabric... BUT too late as Id already bought it. Unfortunately westerners are real targets. Be VERY cautious.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

You can find whatever fabric you want at a very reasonable price, right in the heart of Denpasar across from the big market Pasar Badung..

“Place to find fabrics in Bali”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

If you want to buy fabrics, Jl Sulawesi is the place .
Learn to speak bahasa a lil bit, cuz not every seller there could speak English and also to avoid them to give tourist higher price than normal .
The shops open from around 9am until 4.30pm .
Just like another traditional old market, Jl Sulawesi is not clean .
Hand yourself a sanitizer and bring water.

“AMAZING!!! Dress makers Heaven!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I absolutely loved this place. The choice and amount of fabrics here are AMAZING!! It truely is a dress makers heaven. I brought Batik Quilting material for my grandmother. In perth we pay alot but here it only cost me about $2.50 a metre. The selections of material is endless and if you are a serious dress maker I would recommend arriving early so you can take your time to browse and enjoy. Absolutely LOVE!!!! oh and there arent many taxis about but if you ask a shop you have purchased from they are happy to call one for you when you are ready to go home...
