Silk and Chinese embroidery

Silk: For silk fabric or silk garment, you can get it in Chinese emporium like 'Chinese Arts and Craft' and 'Chinese Resources'.


Embroidery:  you can get it from many Chinese emporium in HK.  If you have particular Chinese characters you want, you may even order one from the embroidery shops at Shanghai Street in Mongkok or in Wanchai.  This is the kind of shop which does traditional Chinese wedding dresses and accessories so commonly people order a piece of red silk with dragon and phoenix and with the couples' name embroidered.  Then the couple will put it on the reception desk on the wedding night for guests to sign.  The shop charges per Chinese character and for the silk.

If you want antique or old looking ones, you can try Hollywood road.  Besides the shops on the main road, towards the end of Hollywood road, you will find a more market like area.  There are kiosks which look as though they are selling their great grandma's collections.

There are also shops in Stanley market that sells linen embroidery clothes and table cloths.
