Traveling for Fabrics
You might not travel to another country just for fabrics, but will surely look for good local fabric shops while traveling:D
During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I managed to get some really cheap fabrics in the Sham Shui Po District. However, I was disappointed by the fact that there’s only one shop which stocks Japanese fabrics – very limited few.
Lucky enough, I discover another place – another gold mine for those who sew – the Central District.
There I found this store – in a narrow street, amongst other fabric shops which mainly sell fabrics for Qi Pao***. This shop sells a lot (I mean A LOT) of beautiful Japanese fabrics and many designer fabrics from the US as well.
*** Qi Pao is a type of traditional chinese clothing
Of course, price-wise you cannot beat Sham Shui Po, but this is like a whole new level – high quality Japanese prints including a wide selection of kimono fabrics!!
Nevertheless, the price still beats what you can find online or any local fabric shops in Sydney!
If you are traveling to Hong Kong and is a Japanese fabrics addict (like me ^0^) or even quality US prints, then you have to pay this shop a visit!!
So where do you find this amazing shop?

While talking about fabrics, I got a package in the mail containing 4 fat quarters I won over at Pink Chalk Fabrics back in December. I almost couldn’t believe I have won, this is my first time winning a giveaway and sure does feel good!
All 4 are Japanese prints by Leicien. I particularly like this small flower print – looking very Japanese:)
Thank you for visiting!! xx
