I like to dedicate this article to all the ladies. A good thing about living in Skopje is the big influence from the East. Near the entrance of the Old Bazaar, there is shop called Alajdini, where you can buy different kind of materials for sewing. Most of the fabrics are imported from the Middle East.
You can find different kind of fabrics, from synthetics to French lace. There is a big choice of silk fabrics; you can find them in any kind. I like to shop there, to make my “Hollywood” dress. I can advise to buy something here because compared to the prices in other countries, it’s much cheaper.
You can buy 1 meter of silk fabric for only 500 MKD. Guys read this, if you come to Skopje alone, buy some gift from this shop for your better half. I must tell you in the Old Bazaar there are quite a few shops like this one, so you can buy everywhere. It depends only from your taste.
