Shopping in Mallorca for souvenirs are an essential part of a holiday. We want to take home a reminder of the wonderful time we had, so that each time we see our purchase it puts a smile on our face.
We also want something unique that can´t easily be purchased elsewhere. Not a fridge magnet or any other such run-of-the-mill ´tat´. You need to be thinking classic, classy and traditional.
Then think no further than Teixits Vicens, the textile artisans in Pollensa, who have been producing traditional fabrics since 1854.
Now celebrating their fifth generation, their artisan fabrics make really special souvenirs.
Remaining true to the traditional Mallorcan fabrics known as ´Roba de Llengues´ (Cloth of Tongues´), they produce wonderful patterns and designs (usually blues and whites).
They still follow traditional methods if dyeing and weaving but now also incorporate more contemporary colours, designs and products.
Would´t these look good for a night out at home ?
Their fabrics have been adapted to furnish, dress and decorate any space, and whilst they have a stock range of fabric prints, they can also mix colours to order.
From placemats to runners, beach bags to cushions, they’ve got it covered in every colour!
This isn’t just any old shopping expedition. You can really make a day out of it.
The workshop, sits directly behind their wonderful shop, which you can find at the roundabout of Can Berenguer in Pollensa, Mallorca. Opening hours (Winter): Monday to Friday from 9 to 19 h. Saturdays from 10 to 14 h. Telephone: (+34) 971 530 450.
If you don’t have a car, you can easily make the journey by bus from Palma (L340). There is a regular service and it takes about an hour.
And if you are travelling with hand luggage but still fancy a bit of shopping in Mallorca, no problem, they can post to anywhere in the world.
A new website has just been launched, so if you have forgotten anything you can order from the comfort of your own home.
