Lace, Gota, Ribbons & More: Find It All In Mamulpet
What Makes It Awesome
The fabulous variety of fabrics here, be it cotton, zari, satin or anything under the sun. They have rolls and rolls of all sorts of fabrics. From ethnic to Chantilly, they have it all covered. And wholesale prices for all. Best if you're buying large quantities or even otherwise you may not get such variety under one roof anywhere in Bangalore. Take my word for it.
What Could Be Better?
The store is very claustrophobic. Especially the first floor where they have rooms filled with rolls of fancy fabrics all over. So if you are claustrophobic please don't say we didn't warn you!
What's My Pro Tip?
It's a sea of options out there so I suggest you go with a basic idea of what you want. That way you can ask the sales guys and they can guide you better. The ground floor shop has the expensive fabrics while the first floor is full of cheaper options.
If fabrics weren't enough, they also keep zardosi patchwork designs for ethnic dresses such as saris and lehengas, English lace for dresses, fancy buttons and hangings for ethnic wear. They mostly have every accessory that you may need to design your dresses for the ethnic season. The place is easy to find on Google maps. Prices start as low as INR 100 per roll for certain basic golden borders. They don't sell by the metre but full rolls of 8 to 9 metres together. Carry a water bottle along coz it may involve a bit of walking and you may need that.
