Visit our Showroom
View the collections
Come along and browse our samples in the comfort of our luxury showroom in Shoreditch. We can talk you through the various silk qualities to ensure that you select the appropriate fabric and shades for your design. For designers looking for exotics and laces, let us know before you visit so we can make sure they are on display.
The showroom, which houses both the Pongees and Sanmartin collections, is temporarily closed in view of COVID-19 guidance to protect both our staff and customers.
Sanmartin is here

Who's talking about the showroom?
I’ve received the silk safe and sound - it’s beautiful. I’m really impressed with the whole service and will recommend you to anyone I think you can help! My dressmaker will also do the same”
The thing that amazes me is the level of communication from you. You deserve to succeed because you care, you communicate and this clearly comes across
A veritable wonderland of silks, the Showroom offers both natural and synthetic mixes in (almost) every glorious hue imaginable! Louis is amazing - incredibly helpful and welcoming - and I never leave disappointed. The best customer service I have ever received, and my favourite silk shop! Would highly recommend to any student or designer
Pongees is a big advocate of helping next-generation designers. I often feel intimidated going to other wholesalers as my minimums are low, but Pongees welcomes all customers - from students to start-ups.
Travelling to the showroom
The best method is by public transport as we are only minutes away from Old Street station and conveniently located to arrive by bus too. However, if you are driving, then please note that the showroom is in a new ultra low emission zone, so there is no access to Rivington Street and Charlotte Road between 7am and 10am and 4pm to 7pm, unless your vehicle is compliant, of course.
