Accessories, decoration, plants, illustrations, cosmetics… there’s a kaleidoscope of possibilities to treat yourself and those you care about.

Extra-Ordinaire

Celebrating contemporary popular art and creation from here and elsewhere is in Extra-Ordinaire's DNA. This “Worldly Belgian” shop was imagined by designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard and set up in the heart of Brussels' central Îlot Sacré. There's a deluxe gift shop in which you'll find clothes, accessories, designer pieces and other items.

Dosha

Passionate about wellness and artisan craft, Fanny and Idriss launched Dosha, a concept store based on local products and zero-waste. Natural cosmetics, accessories, art, decoration, fashion... You can find all their products in Orybany, the shop they recently merged with. Curious about their workshops and meetings with artisans? Take a look at their calendar.

Ko Store

Ko Store, located between the canal and Sainte-Catherine, only selects sustainable and independent brands. As well as beautiful jewellery, they have hand-sewn hair bands, mouth masks, pillows and other accessories. Their pieces are made in their workshop and then pass through the skilled hands of a Belgian goldsmith. Local and affordable.
