Where you'll be
In the 1950s, The area of Sham Shui Po became known as the heart of HK's textiles manufacturing industry. Although the industry experienced a downturn in the 1980s, SSP has remained popular with designers & craftsmen, thanks to the sheer variety & affordability of material on offer. The best way to peruse these wares is by visiting the main shopping streets, where you'll find vendors specialising in different types of accessories or fabrics.
