Marché Saint-Pierre – Dreyfus
Spanning six storeys and 2,500m2, the market houses thousands of rolls and offcuts of fabrics for clothes making and decoration, peddled by vendors famed for their cheeky humour… No, this is not a souk in Marrakesh, but a Parisian institution, established in the mid-20th century: a hive of activity popular with all fashion and decorating enthusiasts.
Amid its avalanche of colours and materials, you will have no trouble finding what you are looking for, whatever your budget. From Liberty prints, to fake fur, to taffeta, toile, pashmina, satin-backed crêpe, jersey, felt, muslin and silk velvet… all of them a pleasure to behold and heaven to touch. Of course, the leading names on the French fabric scene are present and correct, with high-end designs from the likes of Pierre Frey, Christian Lacroix and Amélie Prévot. And if you want more, be aware that the surrounding streets abound with fabric stores!
