A paradise for memorable gifts, La Débrouille Compagnie is high up in Ménilmontant, looking down on chic Paris. Halfway between contemporary design and artisanal crafts, everything here is an escape from mass-produced objects, using recycled materials in inventive, stylish ways that change the ways you think about consumption – a mesh bag made from ring pulls, a straw hat made from newspaper, rings from bicycle inner tubes, elegant lamps made from jam jars, toy cars made from tin cans. Also an artists’ association, the boutique represents crafts from over 20 countries and hosts a creative atelier in Paris that teaches forgotten technical crafts. Check out their schedule of courses, and classes for kids.
