Hi, Where exactly is Alta Moda in Bali? Every trip to Bali I look for fabric but never find any! Any other fabric locations? Thanks Anita

Bar far the best fabric shop location is in Denpasar - jalan Suluwesi - all the drivers know it. It is a street ( in fact a few streets ) with hundreds of fabric shops.
Well worth getting a driver or a taxi there.
The gold shops and Denpasar markets are next to to ther fabric shops.
I went to Sulawesi Street in Denpasar(from recommendations on this forum) - the whole street was fabric store after fabric store. I ended up not buying anything as I was totally put off by the touts and aggressive behavior of salespeople(also warned of this on the forum) - maybe it being my first trip to Bali and being in my late 60's was the main reason it was not a fun experience for me. But if you are looking for fabric this is the place to be!!
Yes, definitely Jalan Sulawesi in Denpasar. Just ignore the hanger - oners. It was my friends first trip to Bali and she said that it was the only time she felt uncomfortable. It didn't faze me at all but then I had experienced places like this many times. She still said it was definitely worth the trip. This year she found a shop right up the end of Jalan Raya Seminyak before you turn into Jalan Lasmana. Great range of batik fabrics.
If you are after Batik fabric and don't wish to go in Denpasar, just do as I do and buy the cotton sarong lengths.....generally need two to make a shirt for instance, as one is just not quite enough to cut out the sleeves.
Try this link!
Mellor had already told you the address in your first response.
It is in the Kuta Istana Galleria
Jl Patih Jelantik, KUTA.
Good luck, ii a going to go and find it too when we are there next week.
Have a fun trip.
Thanks for the address. I didn't get it first time around! I will most definately be going there. Whilst I have got some sewers online, are there any online shops you would recommend. I buy from Gorgeous Fabrics and Emmaonesock in USA, but there must be loads of others around that are good. Looking for fabric for day wear mostly. Have a nice day
