Although there are a lot of fabric shops in Phahurat Market, this one stands out. It’s run by two partners from India who have been in business for 30 years.
Thousands of yards of traditional Indian cotton, chiffon, and scarves reach to the ceilings, covering all the walls and counter spaces. They also have embroidered wall hangings and traditional pillows.
Wholesale prices start at 10 yards of any one pattern of fabric, and a hand-stitched, six-foot wall hanging sells for about 1,400 baht.
It might take a bit of searching to find Madan Handicraft. The easiest way to get there is to enter Phahurat Market on Phahurat Road right across from the big red mall called Chinaworld and then turn left once inside.
