[color=#008040]MOD NOTE: Edited title to include the answer; not to be confused with the RETAIL fabric market at Dihua St. in Western Taibei, which has its own thread. --DB[/color]
I remember reading an article in Centered in Taipei about a wholesale fabric district where one could purchase fabric by the bolt. It’s not Di Hua Street where the Fabric Market is and where people buy goodies for Chinese New Year but the name of the street sounds very similar, enough to confuse people who try to find it, and even the taxi drivers (maybe the same romanization but different tones?). Clear as mud?
I’ve tried calling the Center and I guess the article was written so long ago the lady answering phones doesn’t know what I’m talking about.
I also tried visiting taiwan-map.com and searching for “Ti Hua” and “Ti Hwa” but that didn’t give me anything to go on.
Any and all leads appreciated!!!
