I have a deep passion for fabrics. And therefore, I am irresistibly attracted by quality. Quality of the material, dyeing, weaving, illustrations, …. To offer better sensations, better function, durability, ….
What do I mainly use?
Fabrics that were produced for great couturiers. Most often from French or Italian manufacture;
Japanese fabrics, which quality is top, at all levels;
Liberty of London, and their unique hand-feel and softness.
How do I find them?
I have the chance to live 5km away from Paris. This gives me the opportunity to easily visit several manufacturers, their representatives or sellers or resellers.
Paris has 2 areas dedicated to fabrics: one is rather in the center (Sentier), and the other one is closed to Montmartre (Place Saint Pierre).
We have 6 languages at home. What helps me to search, compare prices, and buy via Internet in most of the world.
More and more, I directly visit the factories for International Haute Couture brands.
Why are fabrics are of high importance?
Any fabric is not for whatever use and function;
High quality fabrics are far more durable, more resistant;
They keep their shape and color;
They also provide much nicer sensations.
Till you take care of them with the appropriate way, of course.
