Top fabric markets in Saigon


If you are not used to buying fabrics, here are some tips for you before you step into a fabric store:

  • Look for inspiration on Pinterest or some sources and save photos
  • Make a little research on which garment you would like to have your clothes tailored
  • Double check the fabric color. Often the lighting in a store can make a color look different to how it looks in natural light, so always take the fabric into natural light (or near a window) prior to purchasing.
  • Once you have all your fabrics picked out, tell the salesperson how many meters you need of each fabric or what kind of clothes you are going to make, she or he will cut it the correct size for you.

TIP: Before they cut the fabric, do a quick check for any printing mistakes in the fabric, any rips or holes, or any stains or dirt that may not wash out.
