  • Firstly, it's worth going just for the experience. The place is a maze of small stalls and shops, full of people trying to convince you to buy a suit or shirt or some such. Plus one long guy on the...  more »

  • Love visiting the material market, which has more than just materials in it. So much to see, buy and so many good Taylor’s to make you good clothes. Browse around snd don’t be intimidated!
  • Loved the Fabric Market, all the stall owners are lovely and you can get some high quality clothes here at really reasonable prices. I highly recommend Stall 181 Stitch & Co, Linda speaks perfect English and the clothes she made me fit perfectly. Great little stall with every fabric you could imagine. Also recommend stall 129 Joyce and Rita, quality is very high and they are really nice to deal with. Couldn't be happier with my purchases there either. Will definitely return to both!
  • Great Market. Had numerous suits, Shirts and pants made here @ fantastic prices. One is spoilt for choices fabric wise and displayed designs for men/women and kids. The market also has other fashion related products (shoes/belts/and general leather products and accessories. VERY WELL WORTH a visit.
  • Many suits I have ordered here. Basically this market is better than other taylors at the black market at the green line subway. The most critivcal issue is the cut of the suit. The best way is to bring your favour suit and let there make a duplicate in the selected stuff. Otherwise you may have some dissapontments. The second important issue is the selection of the fabrics. Let cut at the edge of the selected one and take it with you. After receipt you can check whether they have really used the selected one :-) I have found there one shop in the top floor, he made the best price. Apropos... Do not believe any propise about the ties these are silk ;-)
  • Lots of choice. Shops tend to sell the same clothes, materials... there is consequently room for negotiations. The traders will automatically sell the items at a very high price because it is normal to negotiate. People can manage to negotiate 80% of the original price. Excellent place to practice your negotiation skills.
