Textile Souk, Dubai

3.0
#30 of 95 in Shopping in Dubai
Survey the rainbow of colorful fabrics on display at Textile Souk. Cotton, embroidered fabrics, and raw silk are among the various cloths found at the market. Decorative extras to adorn outfits, such as buttons, lace, and sequins are also in abundance. Even if fabrics aren’t your thing, consider taking the water taxi to the market, which gives you panoramic views of the surrounding neighborhoods. If you do take a taxi, remember to negotiate; prices are rarely static. Plan my trip to Dubai with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • If you don't like people pushy salesmen, you may not like this area. However, if just walk by or say you are not interested and keep walking that normally is good enough. We stopped at The Pashmina Ho...  more »
  • For buying clothes and textiles vario is very good ... certainly you have to haggle over the price ... but the value is great. ...

  • Love it so much. A heaven for textile market in Dubai. Anything about textile and fabric you named it.
  • I was hoping to buy buttons for a costume I was working on. They do not exist here. I was also looking for fabric. There is plenty, but I did not find what I wanted. (I'm not surprised. I was looking for something extremely specific). What I did find was a lot of extremely aggressive salesmen. I did end up buying some dates. But no, I do not want a kilo of saffron. Lol. There is plenty of interesting sight seeing and conversation to be had. But I was there to find some specific things, and got a bit grumpy that I spent more time than I wanted to. Visit. But plan on wandering.
  • It's a nice place. Best thing is your can always bargain for good prices.
  • Much quieter than the gold souk. Got nice bargains
  • It was exciting to go and look at the beautiful merchandise but I am afraid we were very overwhelmed with the Textile Souk, people everywhere trying to sell, no time to look because of the pressure of sellers trying to get you to look at their products or come into their store. It is very hard to ignore the very pushy sellers. We just wanted to get to the other end. I did buy 2 beautiful pashminas, so all was not lost.
