Fabrics

– Viptex (City) – Avenida Comandante Valodia, 176
– Sao Paulo Fabric market – this is basically a collection  of traders all selling fabrics within an upper floor area.  Be careful, it’s not the nicest part of town, so make sure you are in a group and with your driver. This is a great blog which describes it perfectly:
