if you want the best deals in town for fashion, fabric, branded wear, etc, then Oriental Plaza is the place to visit for affordable deals. The tastiest Samoosas and Indian food for a lunch after a great bargin hunting.

A great place to find virtually anything you are looking for at competitive prices. It can be veerry busy and ttiring so it is best to get there early nd preferably during the weeek.

I'm sorry I cannot help you. There are so many fabric shops there, I'm sure you could fine one that does sell what you are looking for.
