The centenarian store Pontejos, named after the typically Madrilenian plaza where one of its façades stands, is still the ultimate Spanish reference when it comes to haberdashery thanks to the heirs of founder Antonio Ubillos.
Yarns, wools, braids, buckles, structures for bobbin, sewing baskets, bobby pins, safety pins and beads fill the three floors of this 450-square metre store. Thanks to its interesting layout, behind every one of their 6 shop windows there is a wood counter with the same contents as it.
Crafts are not just for sale, but all over the space: for instance, the store still maintains the old ribbon bobbins, where customers pick their buttons. Each one allows for 100 linear metres to be showcased and over 20,000 articles to be displayed.
