Les Toiles du Soleil

    Smiles abound at this colorful Chelsea boutique that offers everything from handmade tote bags to Roman shades made out of toiles, a very heavy, brightly colored cotton fabric made on antique looms. The highly durable canvas-like fabric is made in a 150-year-old factory in the Catalan region of France, along with signature espadrilles, for which it also became known. Boutique owners Sandrine Guibert and Jean-Luc Carrucciu tout the durability of their fashionable goods, which include a variety of cosmetic cases, aprons, tablecloths, placemats and runners, napkins, and duvets, all made in the store. Les Toiles even carries a selection of laptop cases, bags for yoga mats, and the imported French espadrilles. Patrons with more specific ideas for projects can inquire about customized orders with the store’s on-site seamstress, including upholstery. The exquisitely striped fabric is also sold by the yard, in indoor and outdoor (stain and fade resistant) varieties. Show lessRead more
