Seat cushions for the comfortable coffee lounge
...seen at the jute Xmas collection by VinziRast. The seat cushions are made of jute fabrics which are sponsored by Julius Meinl Austria (known for its premium coffee) for the Viennese community project. Twelve homeless people together with volunteer professionals are the producers of the items. The purchase of the cushions will support the community project which provides not only places for sleeping and lunch but new approaches for a re-start. Additionally to the seat cushions, the jute Xmas collection consists of 'Nikolo re-loaded' bags. Each of the re-useable bags is unique - and can be used for Saint Nicholas Day (6 December) and Christmas as well.
On 11 and 12 December 2014 between 10:00 and 17:00, VinziRast invites to Christmas punch and cookies on occasion of the VinziWeihnachtsChance at the Xmas-decorated inner courtyard of VinziRast (Währinger Straße 19, 9th district of Vienna) where the collection (picture right) and other products such as tablecloths can be shopped.
