Afrika Tiss showroom at les Grands Voisins
Our showroom is part of the Boutiques-ateliers des Grands Voisins, situated here during the construction of the future eco-district of the former Saint-Vincent-de-Paul hospital. In this new kind of market place – both ethical and sustainable – social work, networking, exchange and the valorization of craftsmenship are at the heart of everyone’s development.
One of the core values of this project is to promote a more qualitative consumption by also highlighting local products, created and produced directly on the site. The format of a boutique-atelier makes it possible to experience directly the work of the craftsman or the artist. This allows proximity and additional dialogue between the customer and the producer. This approach also aims to build social and solidarity links, both between people working together on the site as well as with visitors.
Do not miss the monthly meetings of Les Grands Voisins that punctuate the life of the site and include:
– The monthly market, the 3rd Sunday of the month, in the two inner courtyards of the site.
– Creators’ Day which takes place once a season in Robin courtyard with a selection of invited creators.
