      Hi Jill,
      I hope all is well. I’ve really enjoyed reading some of your posts about Bangkok shopping in the local markets!
      I will be coming to Bangkok for a few days starting from tomorrow. I was wondering if you could help me?
      I’m looking for these super-cute fabric covers for keys, phones, passports etc.
      I found some in the Palladium Mall (outdoor market) but can you tell me where else I can find them?

      Thanks for your help in advance!
      Joanne

      Hello Jill,
      I´ll be in Bangkok next week for 2 weeks just for shopping fabrics wholesale.
      Do you have any address selling PVC-Fabrics or laminated cotton in Bangkok?
      Thanks for your help 🙂
      Greetings Hariett

    Purse handles and frames at Wong Wian Yai 

    This is the place for accessories to make bags and shoes. Most of these shops on Soi Sarapi near Wong Wian Yai are open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and are closed on Sundays. Products include PVC, leather, buckles, beads, chains, cord, feathers, fasteners, sequined fabric, rhinestone fabric, zippers, zipper pulls, shoe soles and heels, awls, needles, heavy thread and industrial sewing machines. There are embellishments made of leather like little flowers and shapes. The prices are wholesale and items can be made to order. The closest BTS station (Bangkok Transit System) is the Wong Wian Yai skytrain station, and the area is in walking distance of the skytrain.
    Wattana Pu Leather Center has genuine leather, imitation leather, embossed and printed leather, patent leather, suede, sequined fabric, fur fabric, bag and shoe accessories and decorations, and heels. They sell feather fringe and trim by the yard.
    Wattanaporn Panich has rings, buckles, locks, hooks, zips, frames, eyelets, rivets, key rings and buttons.

      Dear Jill, so happy to have found your website! Can I please find out if you will need to negotiate (haggle) on price at these stores or they usually already have prices listed? I’m looking for clutch bag shells and frames. World Champ looks amazing. thank you!

        I think you just ask what is the wholesale price. If you order more, the price goes down. I don’t think you haggle. It depends on the quantity.

      Thank you for the information. I went to Soi Sarapi couple times but did not have this info so I was at lost. I will have to get back there again since I want to get some leather to make some bags. 🙂

    Wongwian Yai Specialty Shops 

    Wongwian Yai (meaning ‘Big Circle’ in Thai) is a roundabout in Thonburi, the old capital of Thailand. Wongwian Yai used to be a major business center before Bangkok became the capital. Nearby Charoenrat Road is famous as the center of leather goods shops in Thailand. There are specialty shops with supplies for shoe-making and purse-making. This area is just over the river from Bangkok across the Taksin Bridge (Sathorn Bridge). If you walk out exit 3 from the Wongwian Yai skytrain station and head down Soi Krung Thon Buri 1 also known as Soi Salapi, you’ll see the leather shops.

    The shops have awls, wooden yardsticks, wax, die-cut tools, mallets, silver pens for writing on leather, vinyl, canvas, zippers by the roll, purse handles, chains, snaps, buckles and of course leather.

    There is a shop called Laser Gallery which will laser-cut material such as leather, acrylic, wood, cloth, and plastic. You can bring acrylic sheets not more than 3 mm thick and they will cut it in shapes to your specifications. Open 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Saturday. This might be the only place around where you can buy a fish skin made into leather.

    After walking down Soi Salapi, turn right on Charoenrat Road and there are fabric shops selling sequin covered fabric which would make a very nice dressy evening gown or dance apparel, such as Pravitrungroj. Also lots of purse handles including wooden and leather ones. Well worth a trip. There were a few tourists too! Open Monday through Saturday 8:30 am to 7:00 pm.
