A story is to be found behind each and every product found in Villa Paul. Each item ranging from stationery, beauty products and fashion has been carefully picked out due to it`s story for sustainability. Perhaps you are asking yourself what is meant by sustainability? All products have been produced under fair, biological, social and ethical circumstances- so when you walk away with a bag of goodies, you know you`ve invested in more than the objects themselves!
Described as a mini department store, nesteled amongst the trees on the edge of Theaterplatz in Baden, Villa Paul recently opened it`s doors to the public. A vision and now a reality, I popped in to say hi to founders Mimi Frey and Doris Rickenbacher, had a tasty iced coffee and a tour of the store.
Here are some of my personal highlights.
There`s wrapping/ craft papers, tapes, stamps, pencil holders, pens, cards/ prints, nail varnishes (also for kids containing no nasty chemicals), soaps and many more delights to be found over two floors.
