Welcome to Bon Vent

Bon Vent is a shop in the Born district of Barcelona.

The Mediterranean Sea, sunlight, the local scenery and its people’s lifestyle are our source of inspiration. A rich, plural and yet unique identity.

This area located in the old sailors’ district of Ribera is blessed with the inheritance of the old guilds that were set up there. So in Carrer Argenteria [Silversmiths’ Street], we have sought to recover that special local value.

We sail off along the coast of our Mediterranean Sea. We seek out lost objects, treasure in the form of unique items that speak to us of the past. Special crockery and cutlery for everyday use, Christmas glasses to toast your lover, antique fabrics to use as tablecloths and old tiles .

We drop anchor beside neighbouring villages and towns and visit workshops run by artists, artisans and small companies that stand out for their authentic character. Delightful collections of bags, reinvented espadrilles, modern jewellery, blown glass items, perfumed candles, olive oil soap, ceramics and all kinds of fun gifts and presents.

We believe in a sustainable environment. We are committed to our people’s authenticity and creativity.

So if you are a sailor at heart, climb on board and enjoy the voyage!!!

About us

This is a family business. Shopkeeping is our tradition and our vocation.  We are the second and third generations that have grown up behind the counter.

Since 2000 we have been working in Carrer Argenteria with the “Como agua de mayo” shops. It is a successful business that has opened doors for us in the international fashion industry.

We love local shops, friendly service, a job well done, and a positive attitude with a smile on your face and commitment to the environment.

We feel we are heirs to those shopkeepers who worked here centuries ago and made the Ribera district a unique place. We are following in their footsteps with the same responsibility and want to be part of the network of shops that still today makes our local area and Barcelona stand out.

We are setting sail with a passion for new adventure. Our voyage takes us out to sea where we see our own coast from a new perspective.

BON VENT is an exciting project. We have brought each of the things in our shop here one by one.  We make and surround ourselves with beautiful things with the aim of sharing them with you.

We go to workshops, meet artists and support local industry. We believe we are doing our part to contribute to growth and balance.

Our work is a gift we give day after day. We investigate, find out, learn and travel so we can offer you the best there is. It is an eclectic, personal result which we are sure you will love.  We are proud to sail on the good ship BON VENT.
