Sometimes, you go to Dongdaemun Fabric Market with a plan. You have a list of things you need and you know all those items are sold there. You wander around aimlessly for hours and return home, tired, frustrated, and STILL NEEDING ONE ITEM YOU JUST COULDN’T FIND! If it’s any consolation, we’ve all been there. Probably more than once. 😉 Hopefully, this list helps!
This is a list of vendors that I’ve put together with the help of other shoppers. If you have any that you’d like to contribute or corrections that need to be made to the list, please let me know!
Generally speaking, similar items/fabrics can be found in the same vicinity, so look around these stalls for others that sell the same stuff, different colors, prints, etc.
