The Hab, an experiential haberdashery store - built on a simple thought by Usha International Ltd. - to inspire people to create, innovate and experience the art of sewing, is just as suited for our mums and grandmums (who know more than just the running or cross stitch) as it is to us novices.

The Manish Arora installation you can’t miss

Whether or not you're interested in the crafts, the kitschy sewing machine installation by designer Manish Arora is enough to make you peer out of your rickshaw if you're commuting on the bustling Linking Road. So it’s no exaggeration when we say that the The Hab is probably one of the most well designed stores we’ve ever stepped foot in.

With an elaborate floor plan, The Hab is every DIY-fanatic’s dream come true. Woolen yarns in every shade sit in vintage jars on one of the walls. On the other, buttons in every shape, beads in every size and sequins that'd catch every little girl's fancy. It’s quite clearly the biggest congregation of craft paraphernalia you’ve ever seen.

The lovely thing about The Hab? They don't just sell sewing materials; they also inspire and teach you to put it to good use. With a center space allocated for children and adults to learn the basics sewing and embroidery, they’ll even allow you take a go at one of their many sewing machines if you get really good.
