Another epic fabric trip jostling the crowds in Sampeng Lane! I had linen on my mind so that became my focus. I started at the Ratchawong Road intersection and meandered through Sampeng Lane and finished at the China World Mall. I used Jill’s map sampeng2012 as my guide even though I know my way around my favourite shops now!
My first stop was The Fabric Centre #277. They have a great range of cotton fabric and everytime I visit I find something new!
On the corner of Mahachak & Sampeng Lane is Eung Hangkim with 100% Venus thread and much more! I bought 12 large spools of venus cotton for an overlocker that I hope to purchace soon!
Next stop was Venezia Italian Linen #131-133
Opposite Venezia was at SD Fabric #110-112
Along further along on the right was Narita International with more linen and cotton.
I crossed the busy road Track Hua Mat until I reached Hong Garment Accessories #4. An amazing shop with a large variety of notions! I hope to embroider on linen with this thread someday! I bought some thread for an overlocker I plan to buy soon!
Finally I crossed the busy Chakrapet Road to the China World Mall. I rested in the air conditoned mall and cooled off with an iced coffee! Last stop was the Kimono House on the 2nd floor. I think this shop is fast becoming my favourite, packed with Japanese cotton and linen. A little more expensive than Sampeng Lane but worth it and if you hunt around you find unique pieces!
