When a Chinese kite maker met a French artist they collaborated and together they made  the wonderful world of Petit Pan boutiques and workshops for kids.I discovered them at Maison et Objects, where  their stand of ‘Petit Pan ‘really stood out with their, fabulous colours, innovative designs including textiles, notions, lamps, children’s clothes and ceramics.

They have created  a very colourful world in which you will find beautiful fabrics and clothes reminiscent in their patterns and design of popular Chinese culture.

Petit Pan is also a great resource for kids’ entertainment as it offers bi-weekly workshops (Wednesday and Saturday from 2pm to 4pm) all year around. Drawing, painting, ceramics, textile design and/or sewing and kite-making workshops are €50 for two hours, including materials.

  • I love Maison Objet, it’s so inspirational and full of life. Haven’t been for a couple of years now as it was part of the old day job. I always feel quite envious of people who do go. GG

      I am very lucky as I go with a good French, English speaking, friend who knows everywhere to go -all the great places in Paris for food and textiles, she is also a food writer and the food stylist for Marie Claire Maison so I am one happy and fat bunny by the end of it!
