Pipa Boutique, Little Venice, London W9





Pipa Boutique in Little Venice, London W9 opened in August 2008 and since then has been really well received by local residents and tourists alike.

The Pipa boutique is a lifestyle store featuring funky fashion, make up and lovely objects for the home including French ceramics by Astier de Villatte and Glasshouse candles. All the beautiful vintage Indian and Tibetan furniture in the shop which is used for display is for sale too.

The owner
Bhavna is a make up artist and graduated from The London College of Fashion seven years back.

"I grew up in India and have always had a flair for fashion. I flew as an air stewardess for Singapore airlines, which really taught me a lot about great customer service. I’ve been living in Maida Vale with my two boys and husband and decided to open a boutique here as I love the area and thought it would be a great addition to the relaxed village feel here."

There are two floors and downstairs is for kids. Its a really magical space with fairy lights and wonderful traditional, wooden toys.

All Pipa Boutique customers get to take away their purchases in lovely handmade cotton shopping bags at no extra cost.
