This was our second time at this store. Hand made silk scarves with beautiful design. Not often could you walk into a shop and purchase something that was just made right off the rack. Different prices for different scarves. You must go, you won't be disappointed!!

I found my one of a kind conversation piece here that will allow me to always remember my trip to Madrid. The scarf is hand painted silk made by the owner. The colors and artistry are breathtaking. There were a range of price points and pieces for men and women. Can’t wait for everyone to ask where I got it upon returning home

I happened upon this shop as I was wandering around this section of Madrid one afternoon. The displays in the window caught my eye, so I went in. The man inside showed me many options, and was very pleasant and friendly. The handpainted silk scarves are beautiful, true wearable art. The back of the shop is open, where you can see some of them as "works in progress", there were a number of them drying on racks while I was there. After the purchase, he very carefully hand lettered a gift bag for the scarf as well. Small touches like this are what makes a great shop even better. If you are looking for a one of a kind item, I highly recommend Lola Fonseca. I know that I'll be returning on my next visit!

As others have noted, this is a very small shop in the historic & atmospheric "Barrio de las letras" (or Huertas) district. Found in my online research for my mom's and my trip to Madrid (March 2018) and decided we would have to visit, as we love small artisan stores, especially if the products are made on site. Since we'd booked a guided tour of the Lope de Vega House Museum just across the street, we decided to visit right after that visit, which ended around 5:30 pm on a Friday. The scarves looked lovely through the window and were even lovelier up close, and touching and trying them on were encouraged! The wonderful owner/artist was at work painting on silk when we entered, he welcomed us warmly and told us to feel free to ask questions as we browsed (in Spanish, which I understand, but he did so in English to other customers who came in after us when it became apparent they didn't understand Spanish). As noted, the scarves aren't cheap, but with the high quality of the materials and high level of craftsmanship and artistry, they shouldn't be, but we didn't think they were priced in appropriately. My mom ended up selecting two decent-sized scarves, and I believe one cost around 50 euros and the other around 85. (They're absolutely stunning, and she's already worn one and received loads of compliments.) Large shawls are of course much pricier, but they're absolutely gorgeous. When the owner wrapped the scarves (very carefully), he sketched a decorative design on the box and signed it! All in all, an unforgettable shopping experience, and a pleasure to support this fine artist and gentleman. ¡Muchas gracias!

The shop is on a quiet side street near our hotel and we wandered past and were stunned to see a gorgeous multi-color shawl in the window. We went in and were captivated and bought it. Unique indeed. The colors fade into each other in this velvet and silk creation. Not cheap but a work of wearable art! A wonderful souvenir of a lovely stay in Madrid
