Here is a supplier of traditional Malay wedding gifts or ‘hantaran kahwin” located in Kuala Lumpur- if you walk around Masjid India area, you can explore the shop and get to know more about the local crafts 🙂
Note: If you are around the area, you can also explore another craft supplier shop located nearby, Sin Yin located at the basement of Semua House.
Previously I’ve bought some satin ribbons and beads from this shop.
For traditional Malay weddings, there are ‘barang hantaran’ that consist of gift exchange between the bride and the groom. The gifts are often made in the most creative ways- and some of my friends who got married made their own items. Still, they usually source for supplies from stores like this where the items are cheaper if bought in bulk or wholesale.
Aside from that, if you have any social functions and would like to buy door gifts or sachets to place some souveniors, you can also bug cute little storage boxes or gift bags from the craft supplier stores. Sometimes department who host functions and give away goodie bags can choose from a whole range of design available to store their door gifts.

Hi ! I’m in Adelaide and have visited a shop in the Indian area which looked, from the outside, like a French Provincial place… with a large display window on the first floor. Do you think this is the one you describe here? I desperately want to order some greenery from them and one of our staff is going there in 2 weeks. Perhaps you would be kind enough to reply to this and confirm that this is indeed the store I saw. Many thanks in anticipation, Helen Hosking.
Nope, the shop does not look like what you have described. From outside, it looked like an ordinary supply store- which supplies are like place in any available space.

Comments about Macy’s so right! Bought nothing got the cold shoulder, had to use the KFC bathroom…not nice. Came back bought ribbons worth $500 got a stool to seat and look through, my p.a even got to use the now very available bath room. Good ribbons relatively high prices but the leash of a salegirl, sometimes the owner is very off putting
The only ones aside from Petaling Street is Masjid Jamek area as far as I know.
Few doors away from Macy you have the Nam Thong- they also supply ribbons. Another place is in Petaling Jaya old Town- https://visit-malaysia.yinteing.com/2011/06/06/craft-and-wedding-items-supplier-in-petaling-jaya/ in which I’ve got the phone number there. There is another supplier few doors away. The shop folks are quite polite.
I am not sure what bus gets there but the nearest LRT station is Taman Jaya- in which from there you can take a cab. I know there is a direct bus from Central Market area but you need to call up the shop to check.
All the best in your purchase shopping.
I live in Mauritius and want to start a business in my country for all wedding gifts and all related accessories associated with it. Wedding gifts will include all wedding boxes,artificial flowers,beads,decorative accessories for bride and groom. I need your advice if I can buy them online.
Awaiting for your speedy response.
Yes, most of the items can be bought online- via other online merchants. But I have not personally tried them before. For the merchant that I recommend, they don’t have online presence, unfortunately.
However most crafts or supplies when sold online would be grossly overpriced due to handling, insurance and delivery.
