Abanicos Carbonell

If you know someone who’d love a real, handmade Spanish silk fan, Valencia is the place to buy one. The city, once part of the Silk Route, is known for its exquisite silks used in everything from traditional costumes to home furnishings. Get down to the Abanicos Carbonell shop in the Ruzafa district, which, while not cheap, stocks some of the most exquisite fans around.

Atypical Valencia

One of our favourites for local souvenirs is the Atypical shop in the Ciutat Vella (Old City) district. These really are not your typical tacky souvenirs, with cool, colourful designs based on local street art, architecture, ceramic tile patterns, and more. Choose from good-quality tote bags, magnets, mugs, posters and much more, adorned with their unique prints. Whatever you choose, it will be very Valencian indeed. You can browse the selection on their website.
