Calepino @ FrenchTrotters + La Belle Echoppe

As you may have seen on the page “Points de vente“, you may now find Calepino in two new shops in Paris.

These are the two concept-stores FRENCHTROTTERS created by Carole and Clarent, two fashion addits always looking for the last art and fashion trends :

  • Bastille area, 30 rue de Charonne, Paris 11th
  • Marais area, 116 rue Vieille du Temple, Paris 3rd

Apart from Calepino, at FrenchTrotters, you will find around 50 brands from the men’s fashion universe, accessories and publications. 


Since 2011, FrenchTrotters has partnered with the blog Redingote to create the eshop called La Belle Echoppe. A beautiful showcase for french made products. A web site that combines a “made in France” market selection to a quality editorial content that focuses on skills, and take the reader behind the scenes of french brands.

Calepino is showcased alongside Bleu de Chauffe bags, basques espadrilles Don Quichosse, Le Minor Breton shirts, L’atelier de la Licorne horn combs and shoehorns or Institut très Bien eaux de Cologne

Behind the scene (part1) : Environment and machines

The main job for Calepino is mainly the printing and the forwarding. Since the end of October the website is receiving thousands of visitors and a lot questions about the 100% local manufacturing process. So, to show you how it works from behing the scene, here are some pictures from the printing factory in the suburb of Nantes (France). A huge thanks to Souenellen and Moon for this pictures that I will publish in three parts during three days.


First part : Environment and machines

Do you speak french ?

Calepino from the print factory

If you don’t speak french, here is the english version of the Calepino website.

I took the same picture as the first post in french version, just to start the same way. You can now order your first CALEPINO from the webshop in english. We ship worldwide, but if your country is not listed during the checkout process, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Calepino, it’s the new notebook coming in three different ways ; It’s also the last one to be totaly produced in France. Calepino also proposes a set of black ball-point pens as well as a set of wooden pencils.
So, I wish you a nice visit into the webshop, and if you are already planing your christmas presents, do not hesitate to go for some memo books from the shop.

And to celebrate the launch, there is a 10% discount if you subscribe to the newsletter.
And also some surprises in each parcel shipped in the next days… don’t wait too long, there won’t be enough for everyone.

I will try to do my best to write in a good english.. but as you may know french people are not the best for languages :-)… so if ever you see some mistakes do not hesitate to tell me. I will aslo try to improve the whole english translation of the website in the coming days.. I just wanted to open it ASAP, as 70% of the visitors were coming from ouside of France so far…
