Where to buy curtains in Kuala Lumpur!

I didn't realise what a task it would be to find a shop that stocked good quality curtains that were not cheap looking and ghastly. I find that the Malaysian taste for fabric is very different to that of most western countries. The variety of material here seems to be very loud, very busy (too busy for my taste) and made from a lot of synthetic fibres. A good, hardy cotton or linen curtain thick enough to block out the light was proving very hard to find.

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:

Sarah Hughes @ Globe
185 Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, 50100 Kuala Lumpur,
Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Tel: 03-2699 7115

Website: Globe by Sarah Hughes

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!



Other stores to have a look at which have a smaller selection and only if you have no luck at Sarah Hughes are:
Macy in Ikano Power Centre right opposite the Curve Shopping Mall
They have other outlets around KL. Have a look at their website:
Home's Harmony: They have outlets in Publika and Plaza Damas shopping Malls, Mont Kiara.
