Look what’s popped up on Stadelhoferstrasse! An excellent shop called “Just Bottle and friends” which sells all sorts of interesting objects, gifts, jewellery and fashion. The shop is run by Maria Vieira and Anouschka Danieli and is where ‘upcycling meets design’, with items that are unique, fair trade, hand-made and sustainable.

You will find truly unique clothes from Lithuania, vegan shoes and headphones, (where part of the purchase price goes to help hearing-impaired people all over the world to hear again).

Maria (‘Mimi’) uses recycled bottles, heated and hand flattened and made them into platters perfect for your apero or as a spoon rest in the kitchen. Anouschka makes étagères from upcycled china; your tea-time will never look better! It’s also a cool way to display your jewellery.

Our favourites are the ‘Oceansole’ models of animals, bright and colourful and made from recycled flipflops found on beaches in Africa, and the really practical kitchen cutting boards in the shape of ibex (these make great visiting gifts).

There are stylish rings, necklaces and earrings of all types; marvellous bags and wallets made from recycled cement bags from Cambodia; belts made from firehose material.

Mimi, who comes from Portugal, is particularly excited about an upcoming Autumn/Winter collection of capes and jackets which are made from a very special, traditional material called ‘Burel’. This tightly woven wool, which has the qualities of Loden or Tweed, is made by shepherds in remote areas of Portugal, using ancient techniques. Worth looking out for!

If you are looking for an unusual gift, or something for yourself or your home, or something with a story behind it, and you are interested in fair fashion, upcycling, recycling and bio-sourced material, then go and have a look at “Just Bottle and friends” at Stadelhoferstrasse 42. You’ll be sure of a warm welcome from Mimi and Anouschka, and of finding something which adds interest into your shopping.

    Thanks a lot Clive for this amazing article.

    By the way, we do not import the bottles. These are all recycled bottles collected in Switzerland. And I have to say… some of the bottles are mine 🙂

    All the best!!

    Mimi & Anouschka
