Summer 2016: Margaux drives her red Vespa, wearing a light dress on the Champs-Elysées. A car cuts off the road. Margaux stops and falls on a unsealed cobblestone.

She would like to bring it home. To exhibit it between antic books and a ceramic unicorn. Still, taking this unsealedcobblestone home would have endangered cyclists or Vespa drivers.

Margaux continues her way and, later, shesearches on the Internet  how to get her own Pavé Parisien. In vain.

Thus was born “Mon Pavé Parisien” : Margaux buys it to the Paris City Hall, she washes it, she reworks it, she paints it, packs it, labels it.

From there on, everyone has a chance to own their piece of Parisian granit-made patrimony.

This piece of Paris suits perfectly with your interior!
Real Parisian cobblestones in their real environment: a street of Paris.

 

835 years of history

Philip 2., knowed as Philip Augustus, was the first serial-street-builder. He decided to enclose the city of Paris with walls on the sides (enclosure of Philippe-Auguste) and on the ground with the first paving of the streets of Paris from 1181.

Streets of Paris (France), in 1223.

The climax of Le Pavé (cooblestone) in Paris is reached in 1968 with 800 hectares of paved streets. From 1968 on, with the riots of Mai 68, strangely, the public authorities decided to privilege massively the coating of bitumen which launches less easily on the forces of order in case of barricades.

“Mon Pavé Parisien” is a real cooblestone of Paris, bought directly from the city of Paris Council, which recycles 8,000 tons of granite every year. “Mon Pavé Parisien” is part of a sustainable development approach and it arrives on your shelf at the end of its cycle in the circular economy.
