Shop: Fabric Shopping in Arab Street Singapore

Textiles and fabric shopping has been one of my big loves for a while and I really miss Beijing, searching for vintage fabrics in the least likely places and working with my tailor to get things made.


Only now, I try to sew them myself!

I have never shopped for textiles at Arab street before but was told I’d find lots of good things and came back with a pretty decent haul.

Here are some of my favourite shops:

  1. Gim Joo Textile 90 Arab St
  2. Bian Swee Hin and Co 107 Arab St
  3. Aik Bee 69 Arab St
  4. Bobby Silk Palace 57A Arab St
  5. Mahoco Impex 51 Arab St

My best advice is enjoy just combing the whole row on Arab street – there’s so much to discover. And those sequin pieces, I bought the aztec for my sewing teacher, 35SGD/yard.

Pre/post shopping, head over to Zam Zams for their famous Murtabak or Alaturka for a mezza platter and hummus.
