It’s getting easier to find artisan and handmade products in Barcelona and conscious consumers couldn’t be more pleased. In the list below you’ll find workshops where you can buy directly from the makers as well as trendy concept stores selling products from local designers.
The reemergence of handmade & local
During Barcelona’s tourism boom following the ’92 Olympics, many local designers and artisans were forced out of their shops and replaced by cheap souvenir stores selling mass-produced products made in Asia. Unfortunately, they’re still polluting every district in the city center and around major tourist attractions.
Fortunately, some artisans and shops supporting independent labels and designers survived and new ones are flourishing as well. In recent years, more local and international entrepreneurs are opening workshops and concept stores selling locally made products. Many of the shops listed below also have a moral compass; a commitment to tradition, promoting local brands, giving young creatives new opportunities and supporting sustainability, eco-design and ethical manufacturing.
