A final farewell to Tejidos Can Casetas

Tejidos Can Casetas carried out possibly the most traditional trade in the Marina neighbourhood. Located at number 5 on the calle Mestre Joan Mayians, just opposite the church of Sant Elm, it was a treasure.

Upon crossing the threshold you will now find a large sign declaring “Closed for retirement” whereupon time stops.

Before arriving at the small counter “almost 200 years old” at the far end of the room, you are sweetly trapped between hundreds of fabrics of different sizes, materials and colours. “We were proud to remain the only store that sells only Ibiza made fabrics of all types, but only fabrics.”
