Nature, simplicity and butterflies are the source of Uyen’s creative inspiration. Papillon Noir’s unique designs and color techniques are the hallmarks of this elegant and funky shop in the Old Quarter. All collections are ready-to-wear, hand made and hand painted, using pure silks, soft linens and natural pigments. Uyen blends traditional techniques from around the world, generating a natural beauty and style that speaks to the artist inside all of us. Papillon Noir is socially responsible, training marginalised people to gain meaningful employment in the fashion industry.
