I couldn't think my chance when, wandering through the Rue delaware Paradis on the lookout for yet more looking bargains for the readers of, I noticed the workshop exhibition of Jekel. Because 1947, Jekel has been providing French style know-how to custom leather and fur.

I am aware coat is not the most popular item in the United Claims, and it is much less used in Europe than in the 1920-50s. The art of designing coat layers and extras is rapidly disappearing, a less than one hundred craftsmen remain in activity in Paris. Finding fur apparel may soon be as difficult as finding a genuine Rembrandt in a attic.

I met with who owns Jekel, Sylvain Jekel himself who described that his course creates and offers distinctive designer leather designs, and fur apparel and accessories.

Jekel distribute their goods globally to ready-to-wear names and quality suppliers such as for example Galeries Lafayette, Sonya Rykiel, Darel, Apostrophe, etc. The course is positioned at No. 22 Rue delaware Paradis.

Many stores on Paradis street sell "Cristal delaware Baccarat", a pricey and prestigious make of gem with a lengthy and famous record relationship back to the first 1800s, and noted for offering royalty using its production.

Those who don't desire to pay a load of income, there's a store at No. 52 named'DĂŠcor et Cristal'which posesses various type of crystal. Their

source is from a manufacturer in Western France, the'Cristallerie des Vosges du Nord '. Although not Baccarat crystal, theirs continues to be high-quality, and--I was informed by the income assistant--even dishwasher safe!
