Housed in a historic building on Dashilar, Ruìfúxiáng has been trading here since 1893 and is still one of the best places in town to browse for silk. There’s an incredible selection of Shāndōng silk, brocade and satin-silk. The silk starts at ¥168 a metre, although most of the fabric is more expensive. Ready-made, traditional Chinese clothing is sold on the 2nd floor.
Ruìfúxiáng also has an outlet at Dianmenwai Dajie .
