Basket weaving demonstration in Madrid with Javier Medina

Watch your piece come to life

Upon requestFree

Far from the lights of fame, Javier S. Medina has worked for many years reinventing the traditional craft of basket weaving to create eco-friendly articles that combine classic techniques with modern design sensibilities. In Carpintería 28, his workshop on El Escorial Street renovated in the style of the oldest ateliers, Javier offers collectors the opportunity to choose pieces they want to buy, and then observe and experience in-person the entire creative process. The duration of this individual live experience is up to the client and it depends on the complexity of the chosen craft piece. It enables customers to enjoy a special moment in the company of the craftsman while they learn how he masters his needle and tools.
