The town still crafts many traditional products, like glazed CERAMICS.
The locally EMBROIDERED SHAWLS AND TULLES are also much appreciated, especially those employed as religious garments. Golden embroidered and sculpture are also valued crafworks.
At ARTESANIA FLORENCIA we embroider tulle by hand and create typical Granadan lace products, using silk tulle and cotton threads. We specialise in creating Spanish embroidered “mantillas” and wedding veils by hand. We have been working in this sector since 1952 and create a wide range of products including women’s clothing and lace homeware, as well as lace clothing for religious occasions. At ARTESANIA FLORENCIA we can assure all the finishing touches and the highest of quality.

The La Hilandera museum offers visitors the chance to visit a 19th century palace, which has been completely restored using only craft techniques. Inside is the arts and crafts museum, which displays a range of pieces created using an array of techniques. Craft workshops are also given in the museum (needlework, bobbin lace, oil painting, etc.). The premises can also be used to organise lunch for groups or other events for up to 50 people.
