The Real Fabric Market in Taipei Taiwan

fabric 1

If you appreciate sewing at all then a few pictures is about all you will need.  The only thing I need to say is that the whole main floor of fabric vendors is the size of a floor of a department store in a mall.    Each vendor has a space jam-packed with goods, with a small area for getting a closer look.  The floor above had some fabric and many tailors and seamstresses hard at work.

The pictures mostly just look at what was right on the aisles as we walked the main walkways.  The walkways form a huge, tightly woven grid.  It is very difficult to keep track of where one is.  However, there are entrances at at least 3 corners of the building, if you can locate a corner.

Just like at the open, bazaar style fresh produce market, there are numbers over each store.

There were a couple of places that had thread and various ‘notions’, but the best selection of those things was in the other specialty shops on alleys surrounding the fabric building.  I purchased 2 zippers from a store FULL of shelves of zippers of every color imaginable.

I plan on going back sometime by myself, or with someone if I can find anyone here who likes fabric as much as I do, and spending hours enjoying looking at everything.  THIS I will miss when I come back home.
