Empreintes; fine craft gifts with savoir-faire
What do I put in my basket? This concept store showcases items designed and made by French craftspeople and artists. So maybe go for earthenware: porcelain, pitchers, bowls, cups, plates, vases and even teapots, either unique or made in limited editions in the creative workshops of France.
What do I add to my Santa Claus list? Among the 1000 handcrafted items displayed in an area of 600 m2 spread over four floors, there are bracelets and earrings are to be discovered in the precious jewellery store, bird skulls and a lobster sculpture made of wire and copper in the cabinet of curiosities, china cabinets displaying exquisitely designed tableware, and large areas dedicated to artworks and furniture. The diversity of artistic expression means that this is the place for the most unusual gift ideas.
