There are 2 Heimatwerks as they are called in German, one is close to the main Police Station the Urania easily reachable off Bahnhofstrasse at the start o Urania Bridge , the other on Bahnhofstrasse very close to Lake Zürich. Both sport the best of Wiss artisan at either in textile, ceramics, glass or would coming from all regions of Switzerland. Needless to say that they accept only top quality for sale in their Shops. The salesladies are very friendly but also very proud having a job in the Heimatwerk - Swiss Crafts Center shops.
Of course top quality and originality has it's price - much better to spend good money on a piece genuine to Switzerland of top quality than to spend dimes on pieces of mass-produced rubbish copied in God knows what remote regions of the World. Example being the estimated Chinese tourist buying a Swiss Souvenir - depicting the MAtterhorn or other Swiss cliches mass produced in the Peoples Republic of China.

We ourselves mostly buy wooden toys in the Swiss Craft Shop whenever we find the need to gift a child and have the money to do so.
