    Le Comptoir Général is a temple dedicated to exoticism. As a curious adventurer and a voyage lover, it invites you to explore and appreciate these foreign and strange cultures, poorly known, sometimes underrated and often marginalized. Because exoticism does not only define itself through frontiers and territories, it is also rooted in history, traditions, communities, and exclusions...
    Thus, Le Comptoir Général explores these faraway lands, looking for the most powerful references and the best talents they might hide away. Once identified, it brings them back to life from the details of their decoration, to their slightest codes and moods.

    For some of these talents, the adventure goes beyond this: what better way to fight against exclusion and difference is there than offering the society as useful as desirable goods?
    Accompanied by Le Comptoir Général, these exotics talents can learn to manage, preserve and promote durably their patrimony, transforming it in a new source of revenues and knowledge.
    Le Comptoir Général is a filial of the W.A.L.T. group, a private and independent actor that reinvests all its benefits in the promotion of animated projects.
