Textile Souk, Dubai

(3/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Textile Souk and other Dubai attractions using our handy Dubai itinerary planner.

  • This was my first visit to a Dubai souk, together with some friends. I understand that this souk is called in various different ways: i.e. Textile Souk, Old Souk. In any case, my first impression was ...  more »

  • Good plan to bring patshminas cashmere or silk. Bargain sellers are pretty pushy, and you unpack their wares to the point where you don't know what color to choose. But it is worth to spend anything for the atmosphere

  • A typical Dubai market with a lot of crowd and no parking space. RTA is usually very strict in these areas. Prices are reasonable and variety is worth visiting.
  • Very hot place good for souvenir shopping not much quality stuff available
  • Definitely worth a visit if you are from out of town. Store owners are willing to bargain with you on the price. You will get approached often to enter stores, but just politely decline and keep moving. I would also recommend catching an abra for 1dh across the creek. We purchased a beautiful kaftan, handmade leather beaded flats, soccer jerseys, beautiful handmade beaded scarves, and hand made clutches.
  • It's good and economical
  • Another of Dubai's many souks. This one is dedicated to textiles so expect to find many traditional and non-traditional textiles.
