Al Satwa

Al Satwa is one of the region’s most talked-about locations. For a burst of vibrancy and excitement, as well as a glimpse into the backbone of Dubai, tourists and residents alike flock to Al Satwa for almost everything. To honour the area’s significance within the city, Al Satwa’s main road Al Diyafah Street was renamed 2nd December Street - the UAE’s National Day. Al Satwa is located southwest of Bur Dubai and adjacent to Sheikh Zayed Road and is arguably Dubai’s most sparkly hidden gem. From furniture to just simply having your car windows tinted, there’s really nothing you can’t get done in Al Satwa. One of the area’s most popular activities however, is tailoring.

Al Satwa is home to hundreds of tailoring shops, including the famed Dream Girl Tailors and Viva Style Lounge. Whether your trousers need adjustments, you’re looking for a dress shirt, you want your favourite dress copied or you’re looking for something from scratch for a special occasion, the tailors of Al Satwa are at your disposal. Many of whom have been in the exact spot for over 30 years, gathering a loyal and satisfied customer base. As well as having clothing items made, there are also a number of fabric shops where you can choose the ideal pattern, colour and texture for your garment. The most popular spot for buying fabric is Deepak’s Textiles. Among the vast selection of textiles within the shop are Irish linens, English wool, crepes, silk, georgettes - all complete with every pattern between spots and stripes. Thousands of people come to Al Satwa in search of the popular Chantilly lace, best known for wedding attire. However, if you’re something of the crafty type, there’s also a huge selection of Haberdashery stores full of ribbons, buttons and every type of embellishment you can fathom. Al Satwa is also a great place to stock up on wool for your knitting or crocheting hobby, as well as picking up souvenirs that are seriously cheap!
