Majorcan Fabrics and Artisan Products
The “Cloth of Tongues” is based in the technique of the ikat. These fabrics are originally from the ancient East, from where they came to Mallorca along the Silk route. The old Majorcan ikat is a very versatile and strong fabric that presents the very same pattern on both sides.
Teixits Vicens also produces many different products such as tablecloths, cushions, bedspreads, shoes, accessories and clothes. All products adapt themselves perfectly in all kind of spaces: rustic, classical, modern…
Teixits Vicens has the privilege to be one of the last places in Europe where you can find the ikat technique. One of the main characteristics of our fabrics is its resistance since it´s made only with natural fibres: 70% cotton & 30% linen.
