Singapore fabric shopping – Arab St

While we were in Singapore I took lots of photographs and notes and decided that I would eventually blog about it all. I am getting to it almost 8 months later!


My husband left to go to his conference and I left to go shopping. Close to the hotel was Arab St, which was full of small fabric shops.






I wandered around a bit aimlessly just browsing before buying anything.




All of the shops had mannequins with fabric draped on them.






I found lots of brocades, and embroidered or printed fabric. Some of it may have been silk but I suspect most of it was synthetic.




Sometimes the fabric was on shelves, sometimes on rolls.


Several shops sold pashmina style wraps too. The polyester ones were $SGD6.00 and the cashmere ones were $SGD10.00










We bought several wool pashmina’s, for me, the lasses, and friends back home.

I’ll write about the Peoples Park complex in another blog.
