Bruno Louis, former marketing executive for L'Oreal and graduate of the London School of Economics, brought a host of ideas with him from extensive world-travel when he founded Ekobo in Paris. Appropriately styling itself as an "eco-citizen company," Ekobo works with artisans in Vietnam (where Louis's father worked for UNICEF) to import and handcraft fine house wares and accessories made from fast-growing bamboo. The results include brightly colored bowls, sleek bathroom accessories, and one-of-a-kind vases that are ecologically responsible, with a design that is simultaneously contemporary and timeless.
Ekobo is within walking distance (no more than five or six blocks) from the Louvre, so stop by before or after you've toured that famed facility.
