Ikat or Sheep Prints: This Store Has All Kinds Of Fabrics At Throwaway Rates

    Shahpur Jat, Delhi

    What Makes It Awesome

    Situated in the same row as Nimai, The Fabric People is one of those typical Delhi stores which is easily missable, but stock full of treasures inside. Step inside to score fabrics of all kinds at prices that won’t pinch you too much. There’s everything from cotton to satin to even brocades and some shiny variants which wouldn’t have been out of place in Michael Jackson’s wardrobe. The first thing that caught our attention was a light, cotton fabric with cute sheep printed all over—we’re already imagining pillow covers and night suits made out of this one.

    Besides this, they have lots of solid colours, pretty florals and Ikat too. Basic fabrics start at INR 80 per metre (the sheep one is for INR 120—we know you’re making a beeline for this one).

    What Could Be Better

    It’s a tiny shop filled to the brim so you’ll have to put in an effort and really plunge into the piles (you'll find tacky options too) to find that one thing you’re looking for. The key here is to just be patient.

    Pro-Tip

    The Fabric People is a good bet for when you’re planning to go all DIY on your wardrobes. Also, be sure to speak to the staff—they will be happy to suggest a great tailor.
