FABRIC - Where Do You Come From?

Have you ever wondered where the fabric used to make your purchased handbag came from?

In this Post Series, I will take you on a journey of discovery, that involves purchasing the fabric through to viewing the finished product!

  • Country - Singapore
  • Area - Arab Street, Little India

  • A bustling, scent filled, colourful street, packed on both sides with traditional businesses selling endless choices of silks, linens, batiks to tempt every shopper.


    I was like a child presented with endless shelves of sweets to choose from. The owner took me under his wing while his wife gave Mr F a seat and opened a packet of biscuits for him while he waited! I could have spent all day in there, it was like aladdins cave! My choice was the beautiful linen/silk/wool blend fabric in rich orange, green and brown, which was brought back home from our holiday and used to make the following bag, accompanied by a rich orange wool fabric!

    What do you think?
