      Dear Jill, Thank you for the update on “Our Home”. I am planning a trip to Thailand in January, and wonder if I could visit “Our Home”. Thank You.

    Wholesale fabric at China World, Pahurat, Bangkok 

    Amazing fabric deals at China World! Enter on the ground floor and head up the escalator to Floor 1, on the left is a shop called Sukin. High quality quilt fabric at wholesale prices! Worth a look.

      Hello –
      Can you advise, if you could go to only one place for QUILTING fabric, where would you go?
      thank you very much…


      • Jill C. 5:27 pm on February 6, 2018 Permalink | Reply

        I would go to Kimono House, it’s around the corner from China World in Pahurat. On Google maps you can find it if you search “Kimono House, Wang Burapha Phirom, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok.” Or if you don’t want to go to Pahurat/Chinatown, but stay downtown, Fabric House at Central World, 2nd Floor.

          Thank you so much Jill.
          I noticed Kimono House in other web posts but location was 2nd floor China World. Different store ? They moved?
          Thanks so much for your help. If ever in Chicago let me know!


        • Jill C. 1:19 pm on February 7, 2018 Permalink

          They moved!


        • Donna 8:45 pm on February 8, 2018 Permalink

          i Jill. Wanted to express my gratitude for providing this information. I found Kimono Shop and all I can say is OMG. It is diagonally across the street from a Huge Starbucks. IF I didn’t need to get back to work, I’d have done more damage to my wallet.
          15 meters of 5 different beautiful fabrics patterns for a grand total of $47.00 USD. All brand names. Unbelievable.

          Worst part was getting a taxi when I came out. Settled for a Tuk Tuk figuring that if there was an accident, I’d die happy.
          Thanks again!!!!

      Hi jill is there also fashion clothings at china world aside from fabrics?


      • Jill C. 7:47 pm on October 2, 2017 Permalink | Reply

        Not wholesale clothing. There are a few retail racks of clothing along the open areas of the mall. For wholesale fashion clothing people go to Bo Bae, or Pratunam area.

      Hi do u know if they make the clothes there? Like manufacture clothes order?


      • Jill C. 6:33 pm on May 18, 2016 Permalink | Reply

        No they don’t. You have to go to individual factories and discuss the patterns you want made, and get a quote. For example there is a factory in Rangsit, north of Bangkok.


    • Anonymous 5:38 am on April 6, 2016 Permalink | Reply

      Jill do they provide any courier service if we want to send back home. I mean the shop owner.


      • Jill C. 11:32 am on April 6, 2016 Permalink | Reply

        No they don’t. There is a shipping service “Corner Post” on Ratchawong Rd. You can go there first and talk to them. They speak English. Then at the fabric shop, tell them to send the items over to Corner Post. Then I guess you have to go back to Corner Post and pay and have it shipped. The fabric shops will send to any shipping service you decide on. But you have to arrange it, not them. https://bkkquilt.com/2010/09/15/corner-post/

      Hi. Wondering if China World shops accept credit cards ? Do they do vat refunds? Please advise. Thanks


      • Jill C. 7:57 pm on October 10, 2014 Permalink | Reply

        Some shops accept credit cards, others don’t. There is no VAT, no refunds.


    • Nik 11:37 pm on July 31, 2014 Permalink | Reply

      Hi there,

      Wondering if by chance you knew if this mall was open on Mondays? I’m sourcing for fabric a work-trip and heard that things may be shut in Monday.

      Thanks in advance!
