When in Paris proper, there are several "must stops". One is always, always, always afternoon tea here:
I'm partial to the one in Le Marais, off Rue du Bourg-Tibourg. No matter how short the business trip or how packed the schedule, I always pop in here for a proper spot of tea. This quick buying trip was no exception.
Another must-not-miss for me, is the Paris outpost of Cote Bastide, probably one of my most favorite family of artists and soap creators as we share mutual sensibilities. Of course they take it to a level that makes me swoon!
I love the simplciity of colors reminiscent of my three favorite fabrics: linen, hemp, and burlap. They throw just the right spot of red into the mix, too.
I'm particularly loving their simplistic snow white packaging for the Coton and Lait lines.
All are available now at Vintageweave. Stay tuned for some fun twists I've done with some of their textiles and fashioned them into unique uses for a client's eclectic home....one is cutting and repurposing this grand laundry bag into bathroom curtains...
Passed by this artistic display while walking down Rue Mambourg. Love when soap is stacked...so artistic. so touchable. so inviting.
