some inspiration… a sewing shop on Barcelona


This is a place in Barcelona, Spain that gives me inspiration… hoping one day I can open something similair here in Malaysia too. Alicia from Duduá told me about Costura, a space for learning to sew and to buy unique fabrics and craft supplies from all around the world. Especially from Spain, Argentina and Japan cause the three founders are 3 young mothers from these countries.   READ MORE>>>



At Costura you can rent a sewing machine on an hourly basis, but workshops are also being organized or you help yourself with one of their amazing DIY kits for making clothes for your kids. Costura has already the patterns for you and they teach you how to do it, from trousers to a dress.

Costura address is 4 Doctor Dou street in Barcelona. Thanks Alicia!

And how cool are these shoes!!! Available in their shop from Argentina. Love them, you too?
