Can Blau history

CAN BLAU’S SOURCE

The name Can Blau comes from a family raised at Simo’s house located in Llucalcari, Deia. Like in every majorcan town, families are known by their nickname, Oliver family was known under the nickname Can Blau. A little story that begins in 1900 and still continues.

HISTORIC BUILDING

It was during the nineteenth century (1770-1800) a textile factory. The industry spinning and weaving looms producing hemp, linen, cotton, wool and silk were plentiful and some extremely important for its production plus the number of workers of both sexes who served there. Located most of them in Palma and the rest in Sóller specialized in linen and cotton. The most characteristic Mallorca fabric was “Llista” which was made from cotton, flax or the mixture of both, preferably used for producing shirts and other garments. Others are engaged in the manufacture of cotton canvas for sails of ships and curtains “Llengos” still prized for their quality and decorative power. After a few years its interior was closed for restoration, leaving the facade as a statement of our glorious past in the textile branch.
In 2014 inaugurates Can Blau Homes, location in “Sa Gerreria”.
