With a passion for bringing independent and innovative contemporary local design to the forefront this post is dedicated to the 'Instant Hungary' brand. The line was born in 2007, as an art project to "create objects that reflect the Hungarian soul". Their locally made shopping bags, aprons and T-shirts, decorated with Communist-era logos and Hungarian themed motives, make for great gifts.
Instant Hungary's signature designs are a creative mix of old school and modern chic. The Great Hungarian Mustache series was inspired by some of our greatest and most famous historical figures who had astonishing mustaches. The Hungarian Animal Farm line depicts traditional Hungarian animals, like the grey cattle and the mangalica pig as the Bremen Town Musicians. The retro-style Communist-era logos pay tribute to the once iconic neon typology that is slowly disappearing. Products include T-shirts, aprons, bags, wall stickers, badges, postcards, notepads and more.
The truly unique and strictly Hungarian 'Instant Hungary' brand is available at Fregoli.
Address: Bástya utca 12, District 5, Open: Monday - Friday: 10 am to 7 pm, Saturday: 11 am to 5 pm, Webshop: fregolishop.com
