Toiles transformed

Closed for renovation, the mythic hotel Prince de Galles, just a few steps away from the Champs-Elysées on the avenue George V auctioned off its furnishings last February -  but what became of the toile de Jouy fabric that made up its curtains and bed spreads?  It has been made into smart blue and yellow reversable bags, easy to fit into a purse and take out for magazines, errands, extras. The French-made bags were limited to a series of 300; each tote is numbered and is sold on the site Bilumstore, specialist in the recycling of advertising banners...

and even air bags!

Each bag is one of a kind and very resistant.
