A great place to buy ALL you need for your fashion design and retail needs:
The company is based in UK, but you can order online and have the items delivered. Minimum order is about 500 AED last time we checked, which is not bad.
They even have a Velvet Ironing Pad which is unavailable anywhere locally.
If anyone, however, does come across the Velvet Ironing Pad in UAE, please do let us know.
