We'll be in Hong Kong late this year, for about 6 days, and of course, I'll be keeping my eyes open for some special fabric(s)- souvenirs, of course!

I'll definitely be chasing pure cotton, silk/cotton, lightweight wool(if it's available), and possibly silk if it is utterly glorious (not so sure if I actually like sewing it after recent experiences). Definitely no man-made.
DDH doesn't want to go over to the Chinese mainland (not a keen shopper!), and we'll be staying in Kowloon, but going to many of the usual tourist places. TIA

Sorry, Aless, can't help you there, but Vonnevo was in HK fairly recently and was waxing lyrical about the fabrics. If she is around I'm sure she will give you all the details.
