At "Zona Urbana" Sofia you can buy a fabulous, unique bag or wallet made from old newspapers or paper maps. It's a shop perfect for recycle freaks!

Zona Urbana is the place where you can buy a unique bag or wallet made from old newspapers or paper maps in Sofia. 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 recycled and reused materials. I can assure you they all look fabulous and will add an authentic touch to your outfit.

The paper used for the bags are mainly old editions newspapers. The most popular are these from the Communist times, which makes the products unique and valuable. Besides bags and wallets, you can also find some jewellery made from keyboard buttons, computer plates and other cool reused materials.

To reuse, recycle and be more careful with nature is the main idea behind the magnificent handcrafted items of Zona Urbana.

NOTE: 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.
