IT’S ALL ABOUT TEXTILES
My friend Sara and I went the other day shopping for fabrics to make some dresses. We decided to go to one of my favorite fabric stores in Madrid, Ribes & Casals. And I say it’s one of my favorites, because it has a wide variety of fabrics to choose from and the people there are really nice. I know a lot of fabric stores (some of them are really well known) in which the treatment is horrible and this one is not one of them at all. Ribes & Casals is one of the best known fabric store in Madrid. Depending on the day, there will be more or less people (there might be many people) but the treatment keeps being the same after all (even if the sellers are overwhelmed), which is amazing. The prices are pretty normal, totally affordable, it obviously depends on what material you’re going to buy. This store is located in Madrid, in Calle Atocha, 26. The store is in the centre of the city and it’s really easy to reach (the nearest subway station is Antón Martín, line 1).
There are a lot of fabric stores in Madrid, but for me Ribes & Casals is really one of the best. If you’re used to buying fabric or you want to start doing it, it’s worth the try.
