Textile Souk, Dubai
(3/5 based on 80+ 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.

  • We have to say-this market is quite small, but leaves a strong impression. Shiny hung fabric sellers-Barker, from which it is difficult to break away and old buildings themselves-this is all very vivid. Here you can buy souvenirs and other cheap stuff.

  • Bargains, bargains! Got Christmas shopping all done in 1 evening. Bought electronics, fabric and got outfits made. My husband loves to barter so perfect venue. 
  • Went on a shopping expedition on my own on Monday to collect some gift for Christmas birthdays etc. The traders approach you straight away pushing pashmina etc at you. A bit off putting for first few ...  more »

  • 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.
