Puedes ir al "Barrio del Once". Hay un monton de empresas mayoristas sobre las calles Lavalle y Tucuman, Azcuenaga, Larrea, Paso, etc. Una vez que llegues al barrio (que es cercano a Palermo Soho) preguntas por el material que deseas comprar y los mismos vecinos te iran guiando. Debes preguntar precios y compararlos antes de comprar, pero en general recibiras un excelente trato. Suerte! Alejo

Deby, you sohould visit a neighbourhood called "Once". In Once you can find fabric factories, a very big one is located in Lavalle 2687. You can take the subway, line B Pueyrredon Station, or Plaza Miserer Station line A

the place to go is "Once" for sure, it´s affordable and you will find everything. BUT be careful with robbery on the streets, don´t carry a camera and pay attention to your handbag. They are good, I was a victim once. The street to walk in Lavalle, one block from Corrientes y Pueyrredon. That´s subway line B. Also, carry cash, no debit. Some shops sell stock only. Anything else, let me know! If you want me to go with you it wouldn´t be a problem at all. Just holler! I am a girl too!

I agree with all of them. ONCE neighbourhood is teh best place. Don´t go on weekends coz it´s closes. Ypu might find some of them open on saturday mornings, but it´d be better from monday to friday from 9 am to 5pm. good Luck!

Hola Debora. You have fabric in a neighbourhood called "Once". Buena Suerte
Answered by Ines Renes , Centro, Argentina
You should go to "ONCE" to buy those kind of things. You´ll find several stores one beside the other, on Lavalle street between Av. Pueyrredon and Pasteur street.
Don´t forget to compare prices before to buy.
Some stores receive credit cards but usually they accept only cash. If you want to buy many things in the same store...... ask a discount!!!!!!!!

You can also check (100-200) SALTA street. There are many fabric stores there (Subway Line A, Lima Station).

se desejas comprar telas, o melhor é como toos te dizem o bairro de onze, mas não as ruas onde se compram retazos, senão os mayoristas que é onde as melhores telas estan, que obviamente são importadas, já que a produccion nacional de telas não é de muito boa qualidade.
Espero ter sido de ajuda, e se desejas posso ajudar-te quando venhas a comprar já que tambien me serviria a minha como experiência! Beijos e estamos em contacto
