Our story

Histoire Altermundi

Once upon a time there was Altermundi...

The first Altermundi shop was created in 2003, “Rue du Chemin Vert” (Paris 11th district). Initially, the products were mainly from Fair trade. The idea that an ethical shop should also offer local and environmentally friendly products gradually appeared, from clothes and fair trade were added various objects and accessories made of organic cotton or recycled material from France or Europe... Today, all fair trade fashion and decoration can be found at Altermundi, which now counts 6 shops in Paris and an online store.
