Add a Point to the Map

Rishi Handicrafts is one of the two surviving cane ware shops on the corner of Arab and Baghdad Street. There is a broad and colorful collection of woven baskets, vintage leather bags, rattan chairs and other knickknacks here.

The cane wares are mainly displayed along Baghdad Street which makes the store easy to spot. Guidebooks and magazines often recommend this place, which explains its popularity among tourists and curious locals.

A single staff alone manages Rishi Handicrafts, so do exercise patience if there are other customers in the shop. Some of the products can be a little worn-out so it is advisable to check the item before purchasing.

Street address: 58 Arab Street
Nearest public transport: Bugis
