Fabrics wholesale markets
The second largest fabric wholesale market inChinais Zhongda fabric market. Be prepared to spend some time there if you are unfamiliar or don’t speak Chinese. At Highsun Fabrics market you’ll find a smaller market in one building more suitable for retail buyers.
Guangzhou Highsun Fabric Market is ideal for small quantity fabric purchases and tailor making. It is easier to find your way around this market than the huge Zhong Da fabric market, but of course you don’t have as many shops to choose from. Highsun market is in a single building with 4 floors and over 100 shops on each floor.
Here you can have your own custom made business suit, evening dress, curtains or bedsheets for a fraction of the cost in western countries. The shops are usually either selling fabrics OR custom making clothes. They usually don’t do both, so they tend to be specialized at what they do and offer good quality service.
You can buy small quantities, one meter of fabric, one brooch or one button – the staff is helpful and friendly no matter how much you buy. Of course you can buy in bulk here as well, and you can expect to pay about 60% of the retail price if you buy in wholesale.
The Highsun fabric market can be classified as a retail market and for tailor made clothes, although you can also do wholesale here. We include this market in our wholesale category since it is one of our favourite places to take small buyers and individuals.
Almost any kinds of fabrics can be found here, for curtains, bedsheets, silk materials, chiffon and cotton as well as clothing decorations. Just across the street is another market, focusing on curtains and bedsheets.

Zhongda fabric market in Guangzhou
Zhongda fabric market is one ofChina’s two largest fabric wholesale markets. In the area you will find many buildings, streets and alleys with fabric vendors of all kinds and sizes.
From the moment you step out the metro, at Exit D, you are faced with fabric sellers and accessories sellers. You walk about 200 meters straight after the exit until you arrive atRuikang Road. That is the main road for this fabric market area. This road is full of large and small markets. Immediately on the corner you’ll find a large accessories market on several floors. Walk a bit further and you have an old 2 storey high fabric market on your right side. On the opposite side of the street is the main market right now (the one marked on our map below). It is modern, with broad walkways, and hundreds of shops on each floor. In the basement you have accessories, and on the other floors fabrics.
Walk further down the street from this market, and you will see a small street with laces and glitter fabrics, then the old original Zhongda Fabric market building, and soon after that – at the end of the street – you have a brand new fabrics market. That market is huge (or will be huge), but since it recently opened, most of the shop spaces are not occupied yet. That market consists of two buildings on each side of the street interconnected through a bridge.
