MY PARIS // Empreintes, 5 rue de Picardie, 75003

This weekend I was sitting in the quiet little Season Cafe on the first floor of Empreintes. I thought to myself I pop in here at least once a fortnight so surely it should be on my MY PARIS list!

Empreintes arrived in the Marais last December. Four floors of design and craft, the perfect present pitstop when you’re looking for a little house gift for a friend.

As I mentioned, Season Cafe have taken a little spot on the first floor so when their sister cafes are full to bursting with Parisienne’s lunching, you can always find a spot here for that matcha latte or goji berry breakfast bowl. Or it can just be a rest stop in between visiting the various exhibition spaces in the building.

The concept here is to champion fine French craft. Each item for sale has been handmade in the workshop of the craftsmen and artists who are invited to sell their works here. You’ll find unique precious items, alongside daily tableware, jewellery, furniture and sculpture.


Emprientes is an initiative of Ateliers d’Art de France.
