Why Haut Marais is Paris's coolest designer district

Nestled between the historic Marais and recently revamped Place de la République, a new enclave – aptly coined the Haut Marais – has taken on a life of its own.  Having lived in the third arrondissement for almost a decade, I’ve witnessed the evolution of this formerly nondescript neighbourhood, which has become home to some of Paris’s most skilled artisans The Haut Marais attracts designers, myself included, not simply for its central location but for its unique creative energy.  It’s difficult not to become enamoured by the charmingly crooked streets lined with art galleries and independent designers showcasing wares unique to the neighbourhood In this ex-manufacturing hub, as evidenced by the odd button or chain shop, many of the designers continue to create bespoke products in their ateliers; the “made in Paris” label thrives.
