    Los Encajeros is a family business founded in Bilbao – 1880 – by Manuel Mendoza Miranda. In the midst of the 19th century, his parents crossed the border between Fermoselle (a little village in Zamora) and Portugal to buy Dutch lace mantillas to sell among their Spanish neighbours.

    In 1880, at just sixteen years old, he decided to move to Bilbao in search of the prosperity that the Basque industry had to offer.

    It’s in Bilbao, capital of the Basque Country, where he established an atelier and store of high end lingerie under the name of “Los Encajeros”. That first store was located in Calle Banco de España, 4, heart of the old area in Bilbao. It is right there where everything started and our history began.
