Zhongda Fabric Market

  • Most people call it the Zhongda Fabric Market even though it is actually not a market but an area with at least 16 separate market buildings. In this area you cannot only find fabrics, but all kinds of materials and accessories needed for the clothing production. That’s why we call it the Zhongda Fabrics and Accessories Market Area.

    It is one of the famous wholesale market areas in Guangzhou, where several wholesale markets are located close to each other.


    In each market building there are hundreds or thousands of manufacturers and wholesalers, which offer fabrics and accessories like buttons, zipper, beads, rhinestones, ribbons, sew-on patterns and many more.

  • How to get there?

    The Zhongda metro station can be reached from Guangzhou Railway Station or from Guangzhou South Railway Station via line 2 to Changgang and from there just two stations with line 8. From the Airport or from Guangzhou East Railway Station you can take line 3 and change to line 8 at Kecun. If you go there by taxi, use the address below.

    Name Origin

    Zhongda (中大) is the abbreviation for the nearby Sun Yat-sen University (学, Zhongshan Daxue), which also gave the name to the metro station under Xingang West Road (Chinese: 新港西路) and Lixin Road (Chinese: 立新路) and the Zhongda bus station.

  • Zhongda Fabric Market Opening Hours

    There are 16 independent market buildings and the shops might not follow the opening hours of the building, so not every shop will have the same opening hours.

    This is a general guideline: The markets are open every day, Monday to Sunday (except for Chinese New Year). Most markets are open between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm.

    We recommend you to visit the markets from the morning till the early afternoon. In the late afternoon and evening (4 to 7 pm) the area is really getting busy and there is always traffic jam on Ruikang Road, because hundreds of people want to leave with their cars and bikes full of fabric.

    Hi, do we get chemical lace borders, 3D laces and accessories in ZhongDa market or at nearby markets? I am planning to visit Guangzhou. Please help me!

    • reply Simon Kanne ,

      Yes, you can get laces at the Guangzhou International Textile City, which is the most known market in that area and at nearby markets. All markets in this area specialize in fabrics and accessories. I can’t tell details, you need to look around a bit and compare the quality and price at different stores.

    • reply Danielle ,

      Hi! For a project I am gathering some information about this fabric market. Can you please tell me if they sell patches (lips, Paris and other patches) in one of the shops there? and if so, what is the name of this shop? Another question which is probably kind of hard to answer is if you know where these shops get their fabric? I am particularly looking for the origin of the 90% polyester 10% elastane mixture. I hope that you can tell where these fabrics are (in my case) knitted.

      • reply Simon Kanne ,

        Hi Danielle, for the patches I would recommend you to visit the accessories area of Guangzhou International Textile City. You can find patches at several shops there. Regarding the origin of the fabrics they offer, some shops are owned by fabric manufacturers and the others by wholesalers. In both cases, most of the fabrics are from fabric mills in Guangzhou. The markets and factories are currently closed, because of the Chinese new year holidays.

        Hello everyone, for bedsheet which market is preferable. Any suggestions please.
        Thank you

        • reply Abi ,

          Hi there, Does anyone know if this market is strictly for trade only? I wish to go myself for some personal projects so will only be wanting small quantities of fabric.

          • reply Simon Kanne ,

            Hello Abi, the markets have a strong focus on trade, but buyers also need sample quantities, so you can also buy lower quantities. But if you don’t buy one roll of fabric, the price per meter/yard will, of course, be higher. You can also go to the Highsun (Haiyin) Fabric Center, which focuses more on retail quantities. There are also tailors in the building so that customers can buy fabric and let the tailors make clothing from it.

              Please tell me, can I get beautiful satin materials at Guangzhou International Textile City?

              • reply Jack ,

                Would appreciate if you can recommend a hotel within walking distance to Zhong Da Fabric Market.

                • reply Simon Kanne ,

                  There are two on Yijing Road, which is at the southern end of the markets: Jindu Hotel and Pearl River international Hotel (same place as Pearl River Int’l. Textile City).

                  Hi. Can you please advise me the left over stock fabric markets or places. Thanks

                  • reply Simon Kanne ,

                    As far as I know, there are no places which are famous for left-over stock fabric. Most wholesalers or manufacturers have some fabric on stock, but it depends on the company and the fabric.

                    Hi, it would be great, if you can suggest a market that specializes in buttons.

                      Hi, I would like to do fabric printing. Can you suggest me where is the best market? I have already brought the design, just wanna print them out on any satin pieces. Can you please advise me? Thanks in advance.

                      • reply Simon Kanne ,

                        Hi Anis,
                        I am sorry, I don’t know any market, where you can get fabrics printed. We either buy printed fabrics or work with printing factories, who create print samples or print entire fabric rolls for us.

                        Is this not a good time to go to buy Fabric as I was informed that most of the things are winter wears and thick material.
                        Thank you

                        • reply Simon Kanne ,

                          Hello Siti,
                          Don’t worry! While the products change in the clothing wholesale markets, there is no real change in the fabric markets. Some manufacturers develop or produce their clothing several months before the season, so thick fabrics are also needed in the summer and thinner fabrics are also available in the winter. The wholesalers usually specialize in a certain type of fabric and for that type, they offer some thicker and some thinner fabrics. Have a good trip!
