Beautifully hand crafted sandals,shoes and bags made to order or made to measure (some pret a porter available) in the heart of Barcelona. I personally make and design all the accessories that are on display under the label Alexis Fasoli. Finest leather or exotic skins are employed, clients participate in the creative process as their order is put together.Beautifully unique accessories. Open workshop to see the production process.HOW TO FIND IT. I AM A LITTLE TUCKED AWAYSome have found it a little difficult to get to. Find the Church Santa Maria del Mar. Face the the main door and walk around the church anti-clockwise. On your right you will see a square with a flame for dead soldiers. Take the first street on the right after the square. It is like a tunnel. There is a clothes shop on the corner with lots of hats. Walk down 20 metres and I am on the right.

Shopping in this store became an experience we will always remember. First, the bicycle outside the store with a quote from Albert Camus attracted us to explore inside. Inside, we were greeted by a dachshund and the owner. We went through the display and asked...More

We stumbled upon this shop and I am so happy we did. The owner was very friendly and her work is beautiful. I purchases a purse for myself and a custom belt to take home to my husband. Worth every penny.

Some people in the world might be able to afford 300 Euros for a block of wood with some leather straps, but not me. Whilst homemade leather has an appeal, the quality of the resultant items is not worth the prices here. Opening times are...More

Having read the other reviews, I was rather disappointed with this, perhaps because I was just looking at what was on the shelves rather than having the time (or money) to commission something. Maybe I would have felt differently if so. Everything seemed very nicely...More

Alexis Fasoli's shop is a pleasure, an authentic delight in the old part of Barcelona. If you enjoy design, fashion, handmade items, this place is a must-see! ;)

A small shop tucked away in the El Born neighbourhood. Not the easiest to find but well worth searching out. There were various quality leather products on display. Alex also offers a bespoke service and will create belts, wallets, cases etc to your own design....More

It's hard to see anything new in this business: that's why the discovery of AF is a pleasure. Fasoli provides something extra: authenticity, 'charme', quality job & unique pieces. If you get into the shop (tiny, beautiful, in the best old Barcelona's corner), you're doomed:...More

A true artist, and a variety of designs. I like your work and your ability to handle the skin for all its products.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
