Barcelona Fabric Stores – Ribes and Casals & Nunoya

While in Barcelona, I had the opportunity to visit two great fabric stores, Ribes and Casals and Nunoya.  Both stores are in walking distance from each other in the L’Eixample district.

Ribes and Casals is a sewist’s dream…  You walk into roll after roll of beautiful fabric from floor to ceiling.  I was drooling.  The place was super busy with so many people buying materials for projects that I can’t even begin to imagine.  There is basement level as well with all sorts of notions and findings.  This is a bustling store but the service was wonderful and I was able to find some great fabrics for summer sewing.

About Ribes and Casals:  Founded in 1933, by Joan Ribes Daura and Joan Casals Alabau.  Ribes and Casals has 5 stores across Spain including Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Palma de Mallorca and Malaga. They carry a large collection of fabrics which they categorize as fashion, home apparel, carnival, dance costumes, flamenco, crafts, and children’s fabrics.

Nunoya, seriously what an awesome store!  I wanted everything in there!  Absolutely everything.  It was just so cool.  This store is much smaller than Ribes and Casals but the quality and beauty of the fabric is top notch.  They were also just very kind and helpful!

Nunoya is a Japanese, European, and American fabric store with high quality fabric in a variety of prints.  Now that may sound silly that I’m visiting a Japanese fabric store while visiting Spain but this store cannot be missed.  Check out the picture below and the fabrics I ended up taking home with me.

  1. Sounds like you had fun! I visited the Ribes & Casals shop in Madrid earlier this year and was seriously impressed: really well stocked, bustling with customers but also plenty of staff so you got sewn to really quickly. I’ll have to check out the Japanese place when I finally get to Barcelona. Who knows, maybe next year…

    1. Oh nice! The Barcelona store was exactly the same. I was also impressed with not only the selection but the amount of knowledgeable staff. It was really a treat that I wish I had at home! 🙂 Yes, if you get a chance to check out Nunoya I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. I had a bit of sticker shock but my goodness are their fabrics amazing.

    1. Hi Sean, Thank you so much for your comment! I truly enjoyed your store and very much hope to visit again! 🙂 I’ve never seen so many beautiful and unique fabrics in one place!
