    • I’m looking for colored stretch cord, for jewelry. I’m wondering if they sell it in Sampeng Market?

    • Wondering if China World shops accept credit cards? Do they do vat refunds? Please advise. Thanks.
      • I asked at one shop and they said they accept credit cards on purchases over 2000 baht. But many shops do not accept credit cards. No VAT refunds.
    • Could you explain where the Lycra shop is and name of shop please. I don’t know the Temple. Thank you.
      • Korea Shop sells Lycra stretch knit fabric at 100 baht per meter plain, and 130 baht per meter for prints. It’s located in the entrance driveway to Chakrawat temple, and is open from 8:00 to 6:00 daily. MOVED NO LONGER HERE

    • I was told it is dead town on Mondays, is that true? Should I avoid Mondays, please?
      • Any day of the week is good to go. Some shops may be closed on Sunday. Shops are closed for Chinese New Years,

    • Hello! I love this resource! Can you tell me if you’ve seen the name brand Moda in Sampeng? Also where can I find flannel?
      • Moda fabric can be found mixed in with other brands at Kimono Shop on the corner of Yaowarat and Maha Chai Roads, diagonally across the street from Starbucks. There is a lady on the corner of Sampeng Lane and Chakrawat Road selling flannel. Not in a shop, but just at a counter on the side of the road.

    • Hey, I stumbled across your blog while searching for a place to buy feathers in Bangkok. Can you recommend any? I make dreamcatchers so I am looking for feathers to decorate them. Bright mix of Turkey coquille feathers.
      • Pornsawad Shop #60-62 Sampeng Lane has feathers at 35 baht each, or for 100 or more the price is 25 baht each. They also sell net, felt, burlap (sale 95 baht per meter), cloth bags, lace, bells, glitter, velcro in different colors, batting, lining fabric, TC (Tetron Cotton), and faux fur fleece (300 baht per meter).
    • Hello I’m reading about places such as Pahurat, Sampeng lane and Chinaworld. Are these places located close to each other or are they essentially the same place?
      • The are located close to each other. You can walk around all these places together and spend a full day shopping there.
    • I want to plan a trip to purchase quilting fabrics. Could you give me addresses. So I can locate a hotel near by.
      • If you want to start with an address right in the middle of Chinatown, try Grand China Hotel, 215 Yaowarat Road, Sampanthawong, Bangkok, 10100 Thailand. I made this custom map below including all the nearby hotels.

      When you are at Hira fashion in Sampeng, see how unfriendly the management/ owners are. After a few years I stopped being their customer and went to other shops. Prices are the same, but better service. Also try Indian area for crafting material (pahurat)

      Any other places like Ribbon Center where I can find wholesale Jewelery.

    Upstairs at Pahurat: denim, velour, felt and more 

    Pahurat is the Indian fabric market near Sampeng Lane in Bangkok. You have to find the escalator and that’s how you know it’s the upstairs Pahurat market. The shops sell denim, corduroy, velour, canvas, cotton, and gauze. Once in a while we find novelty cottons or other great fabric for quilting. Adela recommends exploring the ground floor of Pahurat for fashionable dresses. They have some very nice evening dresses in shops on the ground floor of Pahurat.

      I read your posts regularly now – such a colourful, fascinating place you live. I would never have any spare cash if I had access to all that wonderful fabric.

      Hi Jill,

      Thanks for all the information! 🙂 would you have any idea if I can purchase burlap in bulk? I was at pornsawad last week and they were charging about 220Baht per meter which I thought was pretty pricey. hope to hear from you, thanks!
