Brianna said: “I LOVE this!! And would be happy to get it! I love the fact that it is recycled and it just looks weird/different which is totally me! I like the unique look and just everything about it! =)”

UncommonGoods artists Vicki and Richard Kung are no strangers to innovative design. All of their products are inspired by robots, giving them a sci-fi feel. These Water & Wine Placemats are no exception. Available as a set of four, the PET felt mats are created using 100% post-consumer waste plastic bottles. The circle at the center of each placemat is removable, creating an extra coaster for  your wine glass.

We’re happy to give these mats a place in our assortment of Community Approved goods! We’re also excited to hear what you have to say about the latest goods in our Community Voting App. Continue reading our blog to see what voters are saying about the Personalized Chalk BoardSilver Phrase Bangles and Rope Wine Holder.

This star of this flashy flask takes the phrase “bottoms up” literally! You loved that the circus inspired illustration, the stainless steel container and that this product is made in the USA.

Custom Fingerprint Necklace

Brianna said: “I love this idea and would not hesitate to get it! it is so unique and special! Something I would keep forever.”

Nicole said: “This is such a beautiful, romantic concept. Can it get any more uncommon? I think not:)”

This special necklace takes personalization to a whole new level! Artist Jackie Kaufman gives you the chance to take part in her artistic process by sending you a special kit which allows you to make a mold of your unique fingerprint. After you send Jackie your mold, she creates this sterling silver heart pendant. You loved that this custom pendant is as one-of-a-kind as you can get!
