Dubai is the land of plush fabrics that display intricate artwork; from different cultural influences; and if you have a thing for fine fabrics, this is probably one of the best places in the world to shop. Your trip to Dubai will bring you several surprises, but one thing you may not be prepared for is the array of colours and textures you will be flung into.

 

The minute you arrive in the country, you will realise that people dress very differently from people back home. However when you  look a little closer, you will realise that wearing the hijab or the burqa/Abaya or the Ghutra and Kandora, hasn’t stopped people from experimenting with different fabrics and colours and designs.

 

The-Fabric-Quest-in-Dubai

 

Embroidery

You will find different types of embroidered fabrics here. The embroidery can be machine made or hand crafted. Each sequin, each bead is hand sewn, making for the most delicate piece of art.  The interesting part is that there are different fabrics used as the base for embroidery and they come in various threads and metal wires, so each piece has a different look, some you may wear on a day to work, some you may want to wear to a wedding. There are different types of fabrics such as chiffon, silk, georgette, embossed, brocades and so on and you will have a swell time shopping for fabrics for clothing, upholstery and so on.

 

Rugs

The souks of Dubai are famous for Persian style rugs. These are intricately designed and if you wish to adorn your home with one of these beauties, you have a sea of options available. All you need to do is figure out what size suits your requirements. There are several patterns and colours and designs available. There are rugs that are heavy and there are ones that are lightweight.

 

Souk and stores

You will be surprised to see that you may go fabric shopping in huge malls or souks. However, the only thing is that in souks you will be able to bargain and at stores there may be fixed prices. The charm of scouring through flea markets and being able to touch different fabrics is something you may make a trip out of! On the other hand, you can enjoy shopping in air conditioned and comfortable malls without having to deal with the weather and crowded fleas, so you can take your pick.

 

Textile Souk Bazaar, Meena Bazaar, Ratti Retail Showroom, Glance Fashion, Handloom House and Fabrics Dubai are some of the best places to find amazing fabrics  that are either ready to wear, semi stitched or in crude form. You will love mixing and matching different layers and colours and creating exciting looks. From saree lengths to lehangas and salwar suits, scarves to fine fabrics you can create dresses or skirts or shirts or trousers with, there is a range of options here and all you need to do is take the plunge.
