Our firm mission is to produce locally in Barcelona by working and collaborating with a varied crew of artisans and creative professionals. Having an ethical production, being sustainable and discovering traditional procedures. For us, the most valuable feature is learning by doing.

Firmamento was born in 2013 in the seaside neighborhood of La Barceloneta and we take many references from its history and idiosyncrasy, as well as from the local surf scene.

WE HONOR SMALL AND UNCOMMON SURF IN BARCELONA.

La Barceloneta around 1930.
The distinctive surfing context of Barcelona, with small and scarce waves, leads us to create concepts such as “Surf Petit” and “Amateur Surf” to define it.
We surf anytime we can. We are passionate about it. But the true reality of surfing in Barcelona is that it only happens few times a year and it usually occurs while windy days in which surf conditions may not be the ideal. Even in this way we always have fun!
Our main intention is to make unique pieces that have been done for a purpose and not just for being another thing in our object-studded world. Pieces that have been created in close relation to the people involved during the production process.
Based on our cornerstones, our goal is to produce a series of limited editions that we'd like to wear or use. Timeless, useful and comfortable are the principles for our criteria.
The style of the first swimmers of La Barceloneta's Nautical Club is reflected on the Firmamento's textile line, adding a "retro" twist characteristic to our clothing pieces, recreating their old emblems and reviving the way that CNAB members used to mark their clothes for competitions.
The Club Natació Atlètic-Barceloneta was founded in 1929 in Barcelona with the goal of promoting the practice of swimming and water polo in the city.
We have a selection of out-of-print books, secondhand books, and other hard-to-find books related to surfing and sea life.
We are also retailers of some independent surf magazines like Acid, Eldorado, Desillusion, Wax or West is the best.
