try the chinese fabric merchants at arab street, Spotlight sells the most expensive fabric.

look for AiBee (i think the spelling is correct). The Indian merchants usually sees expensive silks.

it's AIK BEE, better be smart when you buy from them... they quite good at raising prices.

U can try Ban Joo at Boat Quay. Check the yellowpages for their address.
Usually Ban Joo quite nice people and willing to let you bargain.

yeah this is the one.
Personally prefer to deal with Ban Joo than Aik Bee textile Co.,

If you do want to go to Aik Bee, try not deal with the older generation.... ;)

Just my personal view.

If you are not buying in large quantity, go to the nearest, if not the transport fees and time wasted is not worth it.
