After all the glowing reviews it seems a bit presumptuous to add another, but I will promise to be brief. Lola Fonseca is everything the earlier reviewers have described and more. I stopped by the shop to buy a scarf for a friend, and then went back to buy two more. Each time I had long conversations with Claudio who... More

What a pleasure to visit the shop while the artist was at work. We bought scarves for our mothers, and they loved them. This is great place to get a unique gift that is a work of art. Everything in the shop is beautiful, and while there are some very pricy pieces in the store, there are also lovely scarves... More

Lola takes real pride in every silk scarf he carefully crafts. His passion is contagious and you end up buying a scarf you had not planned on buying, but still feel good about it.

If you are looking for the perfect hand made and hand painted silk scarf than look no further than this establishment. There is a limited supply however each one is unique and hand made. I am in love with my scarf..and will treasure this precious possession for the rest of my life. Also, there is a gorgeous puppy, Carmelita, that... More

Same as other reviews: outstanding hand-made silk scarves. Works of art. Never enough inventory to keep up with demand. They will customize a scarf with your name in the border and sell silk handkerchief-size pieces with words of your choice. Yes, their scarves are relatively expensive...many beautiful pieces in the E70 to E150 rnage and some at E700. Yes, 700.... More

Lola is a great artist and her silk painting is evidence of this. These are friendly, earnest artisans and it definitely worth the trip to find her workshop.

Walking thru a favorite neighborhood of Madrid, we came upon Lola Fonseca, the most exquisite shop selling one of a kind hand painted silks - scarves of all sizes, shawls, jackets, dresses. We were welcomed by the owner/artists, a gentle, welcoming, creative, very sweet young man and his very lovely, charming mom Lola, both of whom create each dazzling piece... More

All the reviews are correct, Lola is a gem and her workmanship is exquisite. Only disappointment was she ripped part of my bill in half that I needed for VAT refund. I'd think she would have known to give me the whole thing. I bought two lovely scarves but lost an 18 Euro refund! Enjoy her work, but get your... More

Had a browse in this shop.The owner is very helpful and there was absolutely no pressure to buy. Ended up buying a lovely hand painted scarf for about 40 euro.From memory that was about the cheapest. A great souvenir of my trip to Madrid.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
