A shop for gifts that are handcrafted, organic, sustainably manufactured, premium quality… simply put: for special souvenirs from Vienna, go to unik.at!
Let me explain their German pun: “Unikat” means a unique copy of something or something that is one-of-a-kind. That stresses that every person working here – with or without a disability – is one of a kind, and so are many products that you find at this Austrian (therefore the web ending “.at”) shop.
The products you can find here include jewelry, clothes, tableware, art, cards, and much more. Two of my favorites at unik.at I frequently buy and recommend to everyone looking for a special little something: the wooden memory (called “Alle meine Bäume”) where you have to match pairs and the shirts or bags with designs by people with disabilities from VOI fesch.
You can even borrow paintings for your office or exhibition from them – for free!
One more thing I want to mention is the refreshing connected juice bar Mentorix next door, where you get super-tasty healthy drinks.
So, if you happen to care about social responsibility, buy your next gift here and support small local producers and social businesses with a cause!
