Made by Humans
On this website, you can meet an ever-growing number of Paris makers and visit their places; shop a curated selection of stuff they make, and help tip the balance on what gets made and distributed. Order the book that started it all. Download our GogoParis App. And follow our newsletter, as we endeavour to keep plugging you in to the city by connecting you to its makers.
Like the book, MKRS. makes explicit that what matters to us the most is a city’s local ecosystem of artists, artisans and ideas people. That’s what gives a place meaning, what brings it to life. We’re concerned with sincerity, quality of life, craft and community. With making, not faking.
