Over 3,000 lacers joined the lace meeting and had the chance to enjoy some cultural events including the sardana dance and Gegants (giants) exhibition, the day was sunny and cool, and gave to the Lacers the best opportunity to show their beautiful works, a great day to chat with friends and enjoy their favourite hobby and find the best tools and publications for their special lace projects, and shopping for lacing goodies.


Folch introduced their new JABALI lace pins at the lace meeting, namely the stainless steel pin 38 mm x 0.40 mm the Color Dome 32 mm x 0.60 mm the small brass pin 10 mm x 0. 55 mm and hard steel 43 mm x 0.60 mm, the four pins were a great success with the lacers.

Our company is always trying to produce the best pin for each lacing technique and we listen to the lacers about their pin requirements. Our primary goal is to satisfy all the lacers that visit us year after year.


Every year our Company Folch has an hourly lucky draw with the lacers for a basket with Jabali products, this year we had the youngest ever winner of our Jabali basket, see picture attached.

NEW: Octogonal Identification Label

oct-left oct-center oct-right

Have you ever wondered what type or size of pin you were using? Now you can quickly refer to the label on the bottom of each box for easy pin identification.

We have added the article description, in twelve languages, six languages for each label side: Spanish, English, French, Italian, German, and Portuguese, Norwegian, Swedish, Czech, Greek, Polish, and Catalan.

Our pins are made in Spain and are sold in the most of the european countries since 1924.

We have added a drawing on scale with mm, with the diameter and lenght dimensions and also our code system informs you about the lenght and diameter of each pin.


You can see the article code for both sides of the box.

Including the bar code to handle the retail identification, we are going to use the 12 language label with our hangshell octogonal box, and the traditional octogonal box.

The label will always remain inside the box, and the customer will keep it as a reminder for future purchases.

Folch’s New Website

Folch has just launched its new website with new areas and features that better reflect the company’s vision and style. The main goal of the website redesign project was to create a different area for each of Folch’s brands: Jabali, Hobby Creative, and San Jorge. For that task, SOHO Prospecting, a website redesign company was contracted. Their team of specialists created a unique project providing a specific service to each customer area.

The website was divided in four areas. Each section was designed with a precise atmosphere, respecting the customers’ interests. The overall look and content of the industrial division is professional. In contrast, the Hobby Creative section is geared more towards consumers. One of the goals was to interact with the customers. For that, the SOHO Prospecting team created Club Hobby Creative. This area allows the consumer to participate in online contests and submit crafts ideas.

To meet the requirements established trends, a shopping cart was integrated into the website. Now, customers can make orders online.

Another main goal of the website redesign was to promote Folch and its high quality products internationally. Folch is a global leader in the pin manufacturing industry. Since its foundation in 1924, Folch’s products have combined quality, innovation and design. Now Folch’s website reflects exactly the same.
