The Textile Souk Has You Covered
Whether you're looking for upholstery fabric for a sofa back home, or want a tailor to whip you up a silk tunic, the textile souk has it all. There are hundreds of little shops lining the narrow passages, and you can find cheap cotton-poly blends or supple silks from Thailand. The colors will dazzle you, as will the endless array of "notions" (buttons, tassels, zippers, crystals—anything you an imagine to trim your creations). You can haggle for a bargain here, even as every salesman will promise you "best deal!"
