Did you know that you can find the temple of afrostreetwear at 40 bis rue Myrha, in one of the Paris’ most diverse and working-class neighborhood?
Maison Château Rouge is a true French success story.
In its three years of existence, the brand has successfully brought life to its neighborhood (Château Rouge) with a clothing line made of wax fabric (a traditional African fabric), created for a young, urban, and international clientele. All of the brand’s bomber jackets, coats, t-shirts, & skirts are made locally from fabrics the designers found around the neighborhood. Fashionistas worldwide are fawning over this slow fashion brand (2 collections per year) featuring colorful patterns.
Beyond offering stylish clothing & positively impacting its direct surroundings, the brand is also one of the main players in the Oiseaux Migrateurs movement, dedicated to sustainable entrepreneurship in Africa. Yet another reason to check them out next time you’re in Paris! (or visit their online store).
