Book: ‘Paris made by hand’ by Pia Jane Bijkerk

Like there aren’t enough reasons to want to visit Paris already! In the book ‘Paris made by hand,’ stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk takes the reader through more than fifty places, organized into walks. Some places are studios, where you can purchase goods directly from the artist. Some places are shops owned by professional¬†chineurs, people who search out objects sought after by interior decorators, architects, and stylists. Famous for her discerning eye, Australian stylist, blogger and sometime-Paris resident Bijkerk divulges her insider’s knowledge and addresses of special hidden shops and ateliers that offer unique items that are handmade, or have the ‘handprint’ of a talented designer, or that we incorporate in our own handmade projects.

Bijkerk introduces us to a designer who reworks antique French linens, another one who makes glass jewelry, a couturier who sells exquisite fabric remainders, a boutique set up like a home, and more. This guide to parisian handmade design is an invaluable resource if you are visiting Paris and love design, decorating and DIY.
