Zona Urbana is the place where you can buy a unique bag or wallet made from old newspapers or paper maps. This shop is perfect for recycle freaks – you will immediately fall in love with the great variety of stuff here.
Zona Urbana was established in 2004 and offers hand crafted products created from different kinds of recycled materials. I can assure you they all look fabulous and will add an authentic touch to your outfit.
The used newspapers for the bags are old editions and the most popular are these from the Communist times, which makes the products unique and worthy. Besides bags and wallets, you will also find jewellery made from keyboard buttons, computer plates and other cool reused materials.
If you wonder who creates these fantastic products – it is Julian, the owner of the shop, you can meet him in the shop.
To reuse, recycle and be more careful with nature is the main idea behind the magnificent hand crafted items of Zona Urbana.
In Zona Urbana you can take a free cartoon map of Sofia with useful tips and popular spots in the centre of the city. The map is really interesting and you can use it as a souvenir gift as well, so don’t forget to ask for it.
Recently Zona Urbana has opened a new shop on the popular for tourists Vitosha Blvd. but I recommend you visit their first place on Angel Kanchev Str.
