Don’t Panic. Hand-made with love
Since 2008, there has been a place in La Laguna that tries to do things in a different way.
Don’t Panic is more than a shop; it is a community, a space to share creations and design from local artists and designers. Everything you can buy in this place has been hand-made with care for detail by adding some love in it.
Every day is different as new creations keep coming in. Being static is not an option; you can always find something new under Don’t Panic’s roof. Here you can find clothes, t-shirts, exclusive dresses and bags, jewellery and many more unique articles to make a surprising gift, or give yourself a present ;-).
One of Don’t Panic’s goals is to give visibility to local art; for this, they organise art exhibitions every other month where you can look and buy creations from local artists. Since its opening, they have hosted more than 25 art exhibits; yet, it is not the only thing they do.
Don’t Panic is also a brand and under this brand, they design and create by hand exclusive t-shirts with their own personal designs, all of them originals and made inside the store, at plain sight. They use environmental friendly inks and traditional hand printing methods to get t-shirts done. And that’s not all folks!!
If you feel like making your own t-shirt, they offer you a personalisation service and will help you with the design and printing process as well, always with a smile. Going further, if you want to learn printing techniques and have a fun time getting your hands dirty, you can always sign up for one of the many workshops and courses they have every now and then.
As the owners claim, Don’t Panic is a true attempt to change the way people shop. For them, tracking the product all the way up to the origin is paramount and one of the many things responsible people should have in mind when going to buy something. It’s not all about the price, knowing if one piece has been manufactured in some factory overseas by innocent exploited children should keep us from its purchase. At Don’t Panic, you are dealing directly with the manufacturer, you can know them by name an face and what’s best, you can always reach them to fix a problem or to place a custom order.
At this moment, they hold more than 35 different brands such as UOPS, 4 Hand Factory, Pendientera, Camaleoni-K, …, all of them with local artists behind their creation and a hand-made manufacturing process.
Many of the pieces are unique and exclusive, so run for them before it’s too late! Next time in La Laguna don’t forget to swing by this amazing little shop; it will definitely surprise you!
