Bellydance Costume Fabrics
People ask me, where do you get your bellydance costume fabrics?
Any time I travel, the first words I learn in any language are – you guessed it – fabric store! I have found wonderful metallic-thread laces in Bali, for example, since that is the premium fabric for the women’s wear-to-temple blouses. When, last Christmas, I was fortunate enough to go visit an in-law who lives in Thailand, I had to buy 2 extra suitcases to get the fabric booty home. The same has happened in Turkey, Morocco and Israel.
But when confined to home base, I have favorite bellydance fabric haunts in San Francisco, the L.A. Fabric District (heaven – was just there over Thanksgiving weekend), and in New York, which is now accessible on line. New York is the top source for the new bamboo fiber fabrics, which are soft, stretchy, wicking and washable. Did I say wicked? Check out those “Peek-a-Boo” Pants! And just ask – I bet I can find it!
