9 rue Taylor, 75010 Paris
An attractive shop with wonderful clothing made from organic cotton – a rarity in this area of large retail outlets with poorly produced cheap goods. The clothes are all designed, cut, dyed by hand in natural colours and marketed in France itself by the shop's owner Alexandra Suppan, most of it in her workshop next to the shop.
Her clothing is so beautiful that the larger children's sizes are highly popular with their parents. The premium-quality is presented with loving care and charm. By the way, Alexandra Suppan received the name Jaswinder Penjab at her wedding and simultaneous baptism in India.

Vibel - L'Architecte de L'Enfant
57 Boulevard Batignolles, 75008 Paris
Vibel has a 20-year family history and began when its founder became the father of a baby daughter. He found out that there was a large range of products for children, but very little in the way of furniture for the child's room. Compared with furniture for adults, children's furniture has always been simple and conventional, with not much aesthetic appeal and very rudimentary functions. To the present day his aim has been to change this with his cheerful collections from Vibel.
