If you are visiting the island of Brac you will be overwhelmed by Brac Stone souvenirs. The choice is endless, you can find clocks, ashtrays, dice, crosses and many more. If you are more into buying an art sculpture, artifact for your home or a design jewelry I would suggest visiting Jaksic Gallery in Split and Donji Humac on Brac Island. Family Jaksic brought up 4 renominated academic artists. The gallery hold art paintings from the doctor of art Dina Jaksic, jewelry from designer Ida Stipcic Jaksic, stone sculptures from academic artist Lovro Jaksic. Brac gallery has been designed by the family member Drazen Jaksic with help of the architect Jerko Rosin. Apart from the particular design and artifacts you can find stone furniture with attractive design. In Split gallery you’ll mostly find smaller stone pieces, artifacts as stone calendar, flowers, jewelry, greeting cards and art paintings.

Startas Borovo Shoes
By buying Startas shoes you are not just bringing home the Croat style but helping in development of the eastern part of Croatia that is still recovering from the war times. Back in the times Borovo was the main distributor of shoes. The greatest hit was a Borosana shoe, not too nice in style this shoe was designed by orthopedics and was obligatory part of the Yugoslav working women that stand most of their work-time. Shoes bring back some funny memories to all the visitors of the Adriatic 20+ years ago! Startas is a modern retro style of the known summer shoes redesigned to appeal to today’s hipsters.
Prices starting at 19€, you can find shops around the country in bigger cities as Zagreb, Split, Zadar…
