This was a highlight of my trip. Chayet’s passion and expertise are infectious and she is very clearly beloved in the neighborhood. Her global insight is truly thought provoking and she takes you to some very memorable shops. This is true neighborhood immersion in an area of Paris you won’t find hordes of tourists.

This was by far the highlight of my time in Paris. I love fashion and textiles and Chayet was the expert I’ve been looking for. She is so personable and knowledgeable. If you love fashion and African textiles, this is the tour for you?

Amazing tour and host! She was patient, helpful and extremely knowledgable of all things we inquired. You can tell she puts a lot of care and detail into building relationships with guests and also in explaining the background and culture of merchants. Would definitely recommend to everyone!
