Entirely hand-made in France, these creations “bring together objects, travel treasures, and symbols challenging our imagination.  Through its poetry, each colorful jewel becomes a talisman.”

This is how the jewellery product is described on the website for the jewellery designed by Maud Villaret, Parisian designer. She graduated in textile design from the famous school Duperré, worked for international trend offices, collaborated with other fashion and interior designers before launching her own line of accessories Toubab Paris in 2006. I have always loved their product since I first set eyes on it in the Soboye store in east london. The use of the wax print and the way the pieces are been crafted all speak wonders. So let me stop and show you just why I love, want and need a piece from Toubab Paris.
