The Chicest Fabric Shop in Paris?

Located between the historic Palais Royal and the fashion district of Montorgueil, Rue Herold is a store with a mission. Founded by Charlotte de la Grandiére, a former stylist for fashion and design magazines, the shop offers a carefully coordinated selection of more than 60 fabrics from France, Italy, Belgium, and Japan, all displayed in a white-lacquered space as clinical as a science lab. “The idea is to mix fashion and design. I wanted to offer fabrics that are accessible, simple, and of good quality,” de la Grandiére says. Also on offer: sewing notions, ready-made and made-to-measure cushion covers and curtains; and bags and zip cases. For more information, go to Rue Herold.
