Ultramod, Paris

Extracted from Paris: Small Shops buy yours here.

On one side of the street you will find a wall of boxes of buttons, velvet ribbons, coloured leathers, pins, colourful threads, while the other side of the street is devoted to supplies for making hats. Amazingly enough the shop still has a feel of stepping back into the 19th century. Ribbon-only shop Mokuba is just around the corner at 19 Rue Montmartre.
