My favourite crafts supplies stores in Paris

In October 2018, I went to Paris for 4 days, I met Sadhguru for our meditators sathsang. It was a great experience and no words can describe my feelings when meeting Sadhguru.

The next day I went to several crafts supplies stores in Paris city center and I want to recommend these shops to you. If you are interested in jewelry making, beadwork and embroidery, do not miss those places:

3. La Réserve des arts (Recycling center)

La Réserve des arts is an organization which collects wasted materials from Paris fashion industry. In their warehouse you can find a lot of textile, leathers, threads, wood and metal. The price is very low so it is suitable for craft hobbyists and fashion students with low budgets.
