Well, how great is it to walk past a shop and notice a man and woman hand-painting scarves in their studio? The scarves are expensive; some less than others, but each one is so unique. It is very hard to decide which one to buy, because you will want to buy one of the most beautiful scarves you have ever... More

Lola is amazingly talented creating beautiful scarves that make a perfect memento of Madrid. The shop is cute and intimate; touching and trying on encouraged. She wants to improve her English so speak slowly.

This is a must have memento of Spain & a fashion statement so if you are in Madrid and anywhere near the Prado you have to go see Lola & her beautiful scarves that are truly works of art. My husband bought me a black & gold scarf that will look stunning with many of my clothes. I will wear... More

Some of the bigger painted silk pieces here are works of art that could be in a museum. I am still thinking about them. The mother and son artist team are lovely people, and buying a scarf here was the perfect memento for the beauty seen on a trip to Spain and the friendly, kind people we met there. I... More

While staying at the Madrid Palace last week, I took a lovely morning walk around the area and found the Lola Fonseca shop. There were so many beautiful scarves, it was difficult to choose just one. I finally chose a red scarf to remind me of my first trip to Spain and for only 40 Euros. Please visit and enjoy... More

Take the time to visit Lola.....she is a wonderful person and her hand-painted scarves are truly unique. If you want to find a special gift for someone....or yourself....this would be a place to look. Lola hand-paints the scarves in the back of her shop and her more elaborate scarves are simply stunning. As the other reviews have said, you can... More

I stumbled upon this lovely little shop by accident, and even though I am not a big fan of scarves I couldn't resist the sign saying "Please touch - Tocar por favor". The shop assistant was very helpful, even though I told him right away that their scarves were too expensive for me so I only wanted to look (and... More

We had heard about Lola Fonseca's hand-painted scarves, so we went to her shop looking for some presents to bring back home. When we went in, we quickly understood why she is so well known. From the moment you enter the store, you feel the magic of a very special place. Very recomendable.

We stumbled into this shop on our way to Cerveceria Cervantes and were floored by how beautiful the hand-painted scarves were. Considering this is wearable art, I wasn't that bothered by the prices, but it's certainly not cheap. They also replicate photos so you can bring in (or email) a favorite image and they'll paint it onto a scarf. How... More

The shop itself wasn't that hard to find, it's just a street or so off from the Prado and is a pretty quiet area to wander around, even more so in the morning that we decided to pop by Lola's store. Lola herself was the only one there when we popped by and was so busy hand painting more of... More
