Cecilia Díaz Betz

Amid the hundreds of modern, hipster shops in the Borne, we are grateful for the opening of La Local, a simple store arising from a road trip around the peninsula and the enthusiasm of two women in love with traditional craft objects that shape our popular culture and define the idiosyncrasies of our country. Who hasn’t ever admired Taramundi knives? Have you ever heard about Bisbal ceramics? Are you passionate about handmade soaps? Well, this is your place.

La Local is committed to traditional objects with designation of origin, but also to new brands that review traditional practices with a fresh twist. The idea came when the alma matter of the project visited Portugal and saw the love of the Portuguese for their local crafts, which unfortunately didn’t happen in the rest of the peninsula. At La Local you will find LINO Ceramics, Taramundi knives, Chimborazo soaps; Villarinox aluminum objects, Ezcaray blankets manufactured in La Rioja since 1930, Siracussa soaps, Mano de Santa crochet, Espardenyes Caretes or Daniel Josier perfumes, among many other things.

The essence of La Local is her passion for objects with history, for dealing directly with producers to learn more about the development and production processes (in some cases ancient), and nostalgia for other times and other ways reminiscent of our grandmothers.
