I love to write old-fashioned cards and wrap gifts in style. On one of my hunts for cute stationery articles, I stumbled upon feinesleben (translating to fine life). They offer a wide array of stationery goods, gift wraps and bags in unique cheerful designs in their centrally located, spacious store.
Whether you are looking for taking home an original souvenir or buying yourself a present, you will have a locally drawn up product, because the two young female designers are from Bern.
Another plus is that you can shop at feinesleben without spoiling yourself rotten. The prices are very much affordable, especially for Swiss standards. If you like to make something crafty, you can attend one of their workshops, which are held from time to time.
Besides creating lovely goods that brighten up your day, the founders of feinesleben are pursuing an ecological and ethical approach. The items are produced whenever possible with resource-saving materials avoiding emissions and biological color.
