Paris: Made by Hand

24.95

There’s a new trend among the young designers and decorators of Paris: an embracing of an aesthetic called fait main. Literally, this means “made by hand,” and in this case it includes not only newly created items fashioned by hand, but vintage objects as well as found objects that may have been be re-worked by a talented artist. What unites them is the discernible “handprint” of a talented creator.

Stylist Pia Bijkerk has discovered more than 50 shops in Paris that embody the spirit of fait main and where you’ll find the most original and creative clothing, jewelry, handbags, ceramics, home furnishings, and decorative objects in Paris. Some are shops owned by professional  chineurs, people who have an eye for the unique, who hunt out objects sought after by decorators, designers, and stylists. They often rework these pieces if they feel they can add to its original beauty without covering up its origins but rather enhancing it.
