Company Description

Founded by the creators of children’s label BONPOINT, Merci is an eclectic Parisian shop selling clothing, accessories and home goods from up-and-coming talent alongside renowned designers.

Merci contributes a portion of its sales in support of educational projects and development in southwestern Madagascar. As of 2017, Merci has generated more than €300,000 in donations from a combination of its own sales and outside contributions.

In addition to helping African communities, the company has acted as a launch pad for young designers, and provides permanent employment to more than 70 local residents. The enterprise transcends a typical shopping experience, with restaurants (including a used book café) interspersed among the linens, apparel and watches for sale.
