Acquire handmade products after buying a finca in the north of Mallorca

The Balearic Islands and especially Mallorca are also known for the quality handmade products, including fabrics, ceramics, pottery and baskets, which can complement perfectly every type of home, modern, traditional, old or new, large or small.  House hunting with confidence – whether you are looking to buy a grand country estate, a sea view villa, beautiful finca, townhouse or apartment in the north of Majorca, contact the local real estate experts at Engel & Völkers Mallorca North.

Fabrics, ceramics and basket weaving: Move to Mallorca and add a unique touch to your home with some of the fabulous handmade products on the market

If you are buying a property in the north of Mallorca and want to give your new home an added Mallorcan flair, the real estate agents of Engel & Völkers recommend a visit to Cortines de la Llar, a textile and fashion shop in Alcúdia. Here you will find various high-quality fabrics made of linen, cotton or viscose. You can also buy quality bed linen and towels to complete the bedrooms and bathrooms in your new finca. The best quality and colourful fabric you can buy in the north of Mallorca is the traditional, locally woven Roba de Llengües, which is used for upholstering and to make tablecloths, bedspreads, cushions and curtains, etc. In Pollensa is the well-known Teixits Vicens family workshop, which makes Robes de Llengües, or tongue cloth. This longstanding family business has been awarded various prizes for the high quality of its fabrics, which you will find examples of in almost every home in the area in some way or another. Here, the tongue fabrics are made using the ikat technique, which arrived in Mallorca in the 16th century via the Silk Road. The fabric that is produced is particularly durable and is ideal for furnishing your new property in the north of Mallorca. Another happy place to visit is the Abco pottery workshop, where ceramic products are made. You will find plates, salad bowls, cups, egg cups and other ceramics in all sorts of colours, even if you are not ready to decorate your new home on Mallorca a visit to these workshops is definitely worthwhile.

Another curious Mallorca product is the Siurell, a rudimentary hand-fired clay figurine with a whistle, which was possibly used by shepherds and farmers to control their animals. Siurells usually represent people, animals or beings from mythology, the figures are between 7 cm and 20 cm tall and are fired in a kiln and then dipped in lime and dabbed with red and green paint, their origin is unknown. If you decide to buy a property in the north of the island, a Siurell is a real eye-catcher in your new home. Another traditional craft on Mallorca is basket making, and includes the weaving of shopping baskets (la cesta Mallorquina) still to be seen in use everywhere, breadbaskets, hats and place mats, etc. In and around Pollensa you will also find beautiful handsewn embroidery and fine dressmaking, brilliant skills that are still thriving amongst the women of this fascinating island.
