Opening of applications for the « Made in Paris » label 2024: a springboard for Parisian artisans

It's official! The City of Paris has just launched the 7th edition of the « Made in Paris » label. You have until Monday, September 18, 2023, 3 PM, to submit your application.

Everything you need to know about the « Made in Paris » label

More than just a label, it's an official distinction initiated by the City of Paris that highlights the excellence of the know-how of Parisian creators, merchants, and artisans.

Since its creation in 2017, nearly 1,500 products have been awarded the label in four categories:

fashion and accessories (clothing, jewelry, hair accessories, bags, leather goods, etc.)

home decor (furniture, musical instruments, lighting, tableware, etc.)

food craftsmanship (beverages, specialty breads, urban farming, chocolate, honey, etc.)

manufactured products (candles, games, eyewear, skincare, stationery, etc.)

To obtain the label, you must submit your application. It will then be reviewed by a jury that will assess the quality of craftsmanship, originality, innovation, and compliance with local production criteria. The winners of each category receive a grant of €2,000 for first place, €1,000 for second place, and €500 for third place.

But that's not all! Parisians can also vote online to choose their « favorite » among all the labeled products. The top 3 products are also rewarded.

For a period of 1 year, the selected products enjoy official recognition from the City of Paris and are allowed to display the « Made in Paris » label.
