Buy Ribbons Malaysia

You may be asking where to buy ribbons in Malaysia and there are actually a few places that sell ribbons around the Klang Valley and the best place to buy ribbons is around Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur. There are many shops that sell them, usually sewing shop or craft shops, which are all located throughout the Klang Valley. Some in malls an some at normal shop lots in the city and outskirt areas.

Ribbons are widely used for all kinds of crafts, scrapbooking, gift wrapping and haberdashery work and most of the ribbons found here range from satin, organza, grosgrain, printed and even paper among the many types available. So this list of where to buy ribbons in Malaysia is made for anyone who is looking for them.

Update Jan 2017 – Below are updates for our satin ribbons stock;

  • 4″ Inch and above – No more stock.
  • 2″ & 3″ Inch (40 to 50cm) Satin Ribbons – We only have White Color, a few rolls left. The rest of the colors are out of stock.

Depending on the type of craft you want to do, you need to know where to buy ribbons in Malaysia, and you can find them at malls or shop lots. One of the best places are old haberdashery shops, where these kind of stores sell basic supplies for sewing and crafting. But in recent years, many modern stores and craft shops have mushroomed and also carry a variety of ribbons. Most ribbons in Malaysia sold are also for craft use only and is not suitable for clothing use as the ribbon dye may come off when washing.

You should know that there are also many types of quality for ribbons, meaning there are cheap and poor quality from China where the ribbons are poorly rolled and very low quality. You can tell the difference when you look at the rolled spool as it looks quite messy. I would not recommend you buy those types, even if they are cheap.

There are also high quality ones imported from USA, Japan and Korea, but these are very expensive, therefore this is just a guide to let consumers know the difference in places where you can source them. Below is a list of places where to buy ribbons in Malaysia, namely in the Klang Valley and with the general grading;

  1. Grade A – High Quality
  2. Grade B – Good Quality
  3. Grade C – Poor Quality
  4. Grade D – Bad Quality

Where to buy Ribbons in Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur

Green Daun Craft Shop – This new concept craft supply store in Damansara Perdana stocks all kinds of satin ribbons ranging from 1/4 inch (3mm) right till 3 inch (76mm) and in various colors. The ribbons sold here are from reputable suppliers who import quality satin ribbons and there are more than 30 colors available where the basic ones are also sold by the meter. There are some grosgrain, organza, lace, metallic and satin mix organza ribbons available but the massive stock they carry is mainly satin ribbons.

Green Daun used to export satin ribbons worldwide hence they carry quality stock but now no longer does the export business therefore they are clearing their ribbons at a very good discount. Some of them are up to 50% from the market price, so if you are looking for a variety of sizes and colors of satin ribbons in Malaysia, look them up.

Update Dec 2016 – We no longer have stock for White, Black, Purple, Green, Red in 1″ Inch Ribbons. For 2 inch and 3 inch ribbons, we only have a few rolls of White, Silver left. We also have no more stock for pure organza ribbons in all sizes and do not have grosgrain or checkered ribbons.

  • Ribbon Grades: You can expect Grade A and B here.
  • Price: $$

Spotlight – Australia craft and home décor chain which sells premium quality ribbons. Spotlight has a wide collection with many types of ribbons but they are very expensive compared to other shops in Malaysia. You can find ribbons that are made in China and repacked under the Australian importers and then sold here. On a recent visit in July 2016, they have a lot of smaller sized ribbons and not much in wider types, however, you can find many different types of ribbons here.

  • Ribbon Grades: Grade A only
  • Price: $$$$$

Lace ribbon shop Malaysia

Bunga Reben – One of the original popular haberdashery and ‘hantaran’ shops in Kuala Lumpur with three outlets, they are probably the most popular shops to get all kinds of craft and sewing items.

However, the prices are slightly higher than Green Daun and the locations are around Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman and Chow Kit area in KL, meaning, parking is a issue around these popular places.

  • Ribbon Grades: Grade A and B
  • Price: $$$$

SSF – This home décor outlet has chains all over Malaysia and focuses on a lot of decoration for your home. They also cater to the ‘hantaran’ business (Local Wedding Business) therefore have a large craft section. Quality of the ribbons here are generally Grade C types and offer wholesale for businesses. However, you need to apply to be a business buyer which requires a deposit and will go through a process. Many years ago, they used to stock better quality ribbons and also wide color range, but in the recent years, the color range has decreased and quality has dropped.

  • Ribbon Grades: Grade C and D
  • Price: $$$

Macy – The main Macy store in Sri Kembangan is where you can find the ribbons and most of the selections are imported from China. They stock standard satin and organza ribbons with a few other fabric types but after we visited the outlet, we found that the quality there was also from the C grade types. They do wholesale therefore, it will be cheaper to buy them in bulk, but then again, you need to see the quality first. Color selections are not wide, but they carry the standard colors.

  • Ribbon Grades: Grade C and D
  • Price: $$

Daiso – The popular Japanese chain outlet which has stores in practically every shopping mall in Malaysia. After visiting a number of outlets, we found that they carry very limited supply of ribbons, mainly lace and printed ribbons which are sold in one meter rolls only. The price as you may already know, is RM5.30 therefore, if you need some last minute cute Japanese ribbons, you can find them here. You won’t be finding satin or organza ribbons here too.

  • Ribbon Grades: Grade A
  • Price: $$

Fun Cheer – I call this the ‘Chaiso’ of Malaysia, where they have about 5-6 outlets all over the Klang Valley. Chaiso because they are the China Daiso where you can find just about anything cheap here. From home décor, household items, stationary, gardening to crafts and party decorations. Fun Cheer also stocks very little ribbons but they are very poor quality. Again, if you are on a very serious budget, maybe here is the right place but you won’t be finding a wide variety here.

  • Ribbon Grades: Grade D mostly
  • Price: $

Online Shops Selling Ribbons in Malaysia – These are small business operators who take stocks from various suppliers and then resell them online. The prices are not as cheap as you think they are but it suites those who prefer to buy online. Some of them also sell ribbons in yards or meters too. Checking a few of them, the ribbon selections are poor, as in variety and colors but you may find the most common colors and sizes from these online ribbon shops in Malaysia.

  • Price: $$$$

Florist and Gift Shops – They usually don’t sell the ribbons as they use it for their own floral bouquets, gift wrapping and decorations, so it is not recommended to check out these florist and gift shops in Malaysia for ribbon supplies. Unless you are going in to buy a gift and have it wrapped by them.

  • Price: –

Stationary Shops – Some stationary shops do carry ribbons, but most of the time, they are very straight forward and standard colors like black, white, gold and red. The variety is also simple, meaning you may find quarter, half and maybe one inch ribbons. Prices are very expensive as they usually sell the ribbons by meters or spools.

  • Price: $$$$

Overall, the above are probably the best places on where to buy ribbons in Malaysia and there are in fact other smaller shops that have very basic ribbons, for gift wrapping and floral bouquets but if you want to do craft projects, it is best to check out the proper shops that sell ribbons.

On a professional note, most of the shops would not know the actual names of certain ribbons and may not be able to assist you on certain uses of these ribbons, but it is always best to ask the sales assistant or shop owner about the ribbon use and other details.

Most of the ribbons mentioned above are available in Malaysia, but are very hard to come by. Only certain shops carry some of them, meaning you need to visit different shops for different types of ribbons. The more unique the ribbons are, the more pricey they can become too.

Satin ribbons in Malaysia are also mostly single sided, this means that the satin shine is on the top side of the ribbon while the bottom part is not shiny. There are double sided or double faced satin ribbons available, but these are more expensive, almost 50% more than the normal single faced satin ribbons.
