An overseas friend recently visited Singapore so one of our places to explore was Arab St which is famous for its fabric stores, all housed in original Singapore shop houses. Over the years some of the fabric stores have moved away but thankfully there are still plenty of lovely silk shops to explore.
Here is a selection of the shops that I shop in.
111 Arab Street
A good selection of plain and patterned silk, mainly Dupion Silk.
Bobby Silk Palace
57A Arab St
Great for silk but make sure to find the stairs as this leads to their upstairs room which has an extensive selection of embroidered silk
Gim Joo Textiles
90 Arab St
This shop is an Aladdin's cave where I found linen and cotton voile all at good prices.
51 Arab St
Shop here for Dupion Silk with a fabulous range of colours.
Do you have a favourite shop on Arab St?
Thanks for the visit.
