As part of our "Friends of LOST & FOUND" series, we visited Einzelstück in Bern - a shop with a unique ambience and assortment. Learn more about the history and the makers behind it.

What makes Einzelstück unique?

The name says it all: Einzelstück is a lovingly designed store with an extraordinary range of unique products with history, hand-crafted goods from around the world, and unique furniture with patina. We also show a carefully selected and frequently changing range of gifts, home and fashion accessories, cards, jewelry, and toiletries and fragrances. With handpicked, durable and sustainable products from near and far, we are tackling the current disposable mentality. We want to reawaken our customers' enjoyment for simple, good and durable things.

How did you come up with the idea to create Einzelstück?

The idea came from our long-standing passion for traveling to distant countries, as well as our love for old originals with traces of use, elaborate production techniques, and finds from all over the world.
