Haberdashery, Sewing paraphernalia and material shop in Kuala Lumpur.

For all those stay at home mums who have a creative edge why not make your own cushions, curtains or even wall deco to match colours and themes that you love. For all those who love to sew and are looking for bits and bobs: ribbons, needles, Velcro, I have found the place in KL for you.

All can be found in the Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman between Masjid Jamek and the Sogo shopping mall.

For sewing paraphernalia check out a store called Syarikat Bunga Reben. They have 2 stores in the area one of which is opposite Bata Shoe shop, KFC and next to Princess Shop.

For all sorts of Material check out the store Kamdar. Kamdar has 2 stores in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and 1 store in Mid Valley shopping Mall.

I am pleased to say that I have finally found a place with some great fabric. Most of their pre-made cutains are still not to my taste but that is alright because they provide rows of other fabric from which you can tailor make your own curtains. The only downer is they are on the expensive side so my next challenge will be to find a tailor who can make curtains at a reasonable price.

But for now here is the place:

It is near Sogo shopping Mall and curtains are on the 7th floor. The entrance doesn't look like much but
you will be surprised what you find on the upper floors!


  1. Where in KL can I find embroidery threads, men's embroidered shirts, embroidered fabrics, etc.

  2. Hello Voltaire911arouet,
    For embroidery threads definitely head to Syarikat Bunga Reben in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman. The shop is on the same road as the Sogo shopping mall.
    on the opposite side though. Look out for Bata Shoe shop and it is opposite it.
    Ask there for embroidered shirts and also ask at Kamdar which is further down the road. Good Luck!

  3. Thank you for the information. Could you share details of some tailors to stitch curtains in kl
