Ribes & Casals has been a major name in fabric since the first shop opened in Barcelona in 1933. Due to success there are now locations not only in Barcelona but across Spain as well. The Barcelona shop is located near Plaça Urquinaona on Carrer Roger de Llúria, conveniently placed in the center of the city. Ribes & Casals has different departments for assorted projects: flamenco, home decoration, fancy fabrics, silks, and wool. Depending on what you are looking for, you can search any of these sections to help you find the fabric that you are looking for. You can visit the store to see for yourself the vast collection of fabrics and materials available or you can conveniently shop online if you know how many meters of the fabric you will be needing. The prices are also available online for how much each material is, so you can search by price, color, material, or function to easily find exactly what you want. Consult the online store or the shop to get your crafting projects underway!


We all know Ikea to be the home goods haven for things like furniture, appliances, and household decoration items but they also sell materials by the meter in order to help you create some home decorations of your own. The best part is that the prices run a bit cheaper than you might find at a regular craft or fabric store, keeping in line with the Ikea tradition of finding affordable things for the home at great prices. Ikea is always stocked with sheets, curtains, and other linens with funky prints so that’s what you can expect in their selection of bulk materials as well. This is perfect if you’re looking to create something to add color or style to a drab apartment or what to create something a little more out of the ordinary. With many locations in the Barcelona metropolitan area, Ikea couldn’t make it simpler or more affordable for you to start crafting.
