Fashion and Shopping with Ethics in le Marais

blank

Le Marais resists the invasion of globalization, even if major retailers such as Zadig et Voltaire, Diesel, Desigual, and Lacoste all have opened shops here. Le Marais still remains a well-preserved island of sanctuary. Nowadays, few places exist where creative and inventive artists can still truly live their passion and originality. It is important to continue motivating them so that the soul of the Marais is not completely swallowed by big international chains. Also, let's face it, what could be more chic than walking around wearing a rare piece that no one else has?

“Ethical shopping”- a nice scarf for Madame here, a beard trimming for Monsieur there, and then perhaps after a few tasty delicacies, relaxing in a divine spa- encourages a less consumerist lifestyle that promotes quality and services offered by the genuine central Paris locals.

By booking your hotel in the Marais, in Paris, or in thousands of unique hotels throughout Europe with us, the result is the same; you encourage a local business of human scale that proposes the best places, the best prices and a truly local service while also providing you with special exclusive welcomes such as that of the Ecole Centrale Hotel***, which offers a large bottle of champagne for stays longer than 4 nights. That's why parismarais.com is exceptional and in a just few years has become both the first cultural and visitor's guide in the world dedicated to the Marais.

A bientôt et bon shopping !
