Our story

Welcome to 16 Gift Avenue, an online shop for natural handmade organic products.

Growing up on an organic farm, Petra learned the importance of living in harmony with nature, enjoying free-spirited upbringing, eating freshly harvested food from the garden, running barefoot on the farm with animals and learning old traditional skills from local crafters.

Since she moved to the city, Petra always wanted to continue her love for nature. She teamed up with farmers, beekeepers, artists and crafters around the world to support their businesses and founded 16 Gift Avenue to promote products which are natural, organic, ethical and eco-friendly. 

Not only just products, but she also ensured all packaging materials are eco-friendly and recyclable and using zero-waste materials where possible.

This may not be possible without her husband Omar, who supported Petra throughout her journey. They both love nature and are passionate about maintaining an organic lifestyle using eco-friendly products.
