A walk in Carrer del Torrent de l’Olla – Part II

A walk in Carrer del Torrent de l’Olla – Part II
Written by Paula

In our previous article about Carrer del Torrent de l’Olla, we started naming some of the businesses and services that make this street a must-visit location in Gràcia. Here is the second part.


gracia barcelonaKangura is a store that specializes in new forms of baby-carrying. Abandoning the concept of the stroller, Kangura has developed a series of accessories you can use to carry a baby comfortably when going out. They sell the Fular, in which you wrap the baby against your chest, the Bandolera, in which the baby is carried on one of your sides, the Ergonimic backpack in which you carry the baby in a reverse backpack that holds him close to your chest, the Mei Tai, in which you carry the baby strapped tightly against your back, and the Kanga, similar to the Mei Tai.

Kangura believes that their products are not only more practical for the parents, but also healthier for the babies, since it regulates their temperature, breathing rhythm and digestion, the baby feels more comfortable and safe so it cries less, and their motor skills are also more stimulated.    

Kangura offers workshops and sells its products at Carrer del Torrent de l’Olla 163.
