This shop was an accidental finding… we had missed turning and ended on the Boulevard du Temple. It was not my first time there, but as I was still looking for silk dye after having messed up my wooldyeing experiment and so evidently this time a bell rang in my head.
And I was in before my sweetheart had the chance to say anything… :o)
I wish I knew the shop before when I was still doing silk painting. They have everything.. paintings and dyes of different kinds and from different companies, the whole choice of colours. They have silk ready to paint or on the roll, also different kinds, very pretty jacqards,… just anything you could need, when you want to bring dye or colour on any kind of fabric. Not only silk.
And the people were very friendly and competent, too. In french, at least.
Address: 7-9 Boulevard du Temple, 75003 Paris (Metro: Filles du Calvaire)
And they have a website, also in French…: http://www.shop-text.net
