La Textilerie is more than just a regular clothing store; it is where the modern fashion world’s magic happens. First of all, the concept of the store is quite complex. You can call here an atelier, a café, a clothing store or even a recycling point. At the atelier part of the store, you can take courses to learn about how to operate a sewing machine, sewing basics and repair your old clothes. In the other part of the store, you can check out and buy textiles, like organic cotton or recycled ones. You can also grab a coffee in the corner! Lastly, there is another part called the recycler-y, where you can shop the second hand and vintage items in good conditions for very reasonable prices to give them a second life.
In addition to that, things that don’t make it to the racks of the store are still used in workshops or in the atelier for other crafters to work on. It is definitely a magical place to be. You can see the community really working together, learning together and plus you can give a second life to a forgotten and unused item here. If you want to attend the courses, workshop or seminars, check their event calendar as they have different events each week.
