The traditional mantilla shawl is one of the clothing garments most associated with Spain, one that is still used in the southern region of Andalusia. Borca is a famous shop located in Madrid’s city centre (between the Paza Mayor and Puerta del Sol) with a wide selection of different shawls, both mantilla and other types available in traditional and more contemporary styles in a range of textiles. With a large exhibition area that also includes home textiles such as bed clothes, towels, table cloths, napkins etc. the shop is renowned for its hand embroidered products. There’s also a baby section. A great gift idea, an authentic Spanish souvenir.
