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.
They are at 39 and 76 Rue François Miron
75004 Paris Metro: Saint-Paul M-Sat: 10.30am-2pm / 3pm-7.30pm Closed on Sunday.
If you can’t get to Paris, they also sell many of their products including lamps, small zipped bags and notions and in the Conran shop at Fulham Cross.
