Aside from great merchandise and one of a kind designs, I was pulled in by the passion and pride of the owner when he displays his products and talks about them. I will definitely make this a must-go-to shop whenever I go to Singapore.

over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly

a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids
play traditional games along the lane. Also home to

If you received a printed cotton textile you have to soak it overnight in salty cold water and then you can wash it in your washing machine. If you received a silken textile, dry clean is recommended.
