Zen Ethic, 52 rue des Francs Bourgeois. Metro: Rambeteau
The winter season has arrived in Paris. My answer to winter's gloom? A dose of colorful prints from Zen Ethic.

This small shop in the Marais carries a cheerful variety of Indian-inspired printed home textiles, clothing, and accessories. 

It's all about vivid floral, paisley, and geometric prints. The pieces are also simple ways to add a little summer to a living space.

Zen Ethic's organic and fair trade collection features embroidered pillows ($40-$120), quilts (starting at $200), curtains, and fabric ($40 apiece). 

Pretty cotton hand-embroidered pillows.
Try to mix different prints together for a personal touch. The busy designs look great together. 

And if you're lucky enough to be heading to a warm destination for the holidays, the shop also offers light cotton tunics ($120), dresses ($150), scarves ($50), and bags ($60).

The store also has pretty felt necklaces and pins, as well as some unique silver jewelry pieces. 

Handmade felt pins and necklaces.
