The store sells a range of food and goods that would otherwise have been thrown away, from ZweckZwei leather goods to book or wine racks made from cardboard tubes, bags made from airbags and more.

Austria-headquartered upholstery leather maker Wollsdorf and ZweckZwei were part of the shop’s re-opening in September 2023, following a refurbishment. LEBI has been in Gleisdorf for 13 years.

Sabine Trantura, Wollsdorf Global Marketing, said: “We have been part of ZweckZwei’s project since 2022 in order to put our leather scraps to good use directly in the region.”
