Why We Love This

There’s a new trend among the young designers and decorators of Paris: an embracing of an aesthetic called fait main. While it literally means “made by hand,” in this case it includes not only new items fashioned by hand but also vintage and found objects. What unites them is the mark of a talented creator. Stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk has discovered more than 50 places, organized into walks, that embody this style. Some are shops owned by professional chineurs, people who hunt objects sought after by interior decorators, architects, and stylists. Other places are primarily studios, where, if you stop by, you can purchase something directly from the artist. You’ll find a designer who makes glass jewelry; a couturier who sells fabric remnants, garments, and hand-woven scarves; a boutique set up like a home, where reworked vintage housewares are displayed; and another offering hand-knit baby clothes.
