Ibiza has a rich tradition of attracting creative souls, offering an inspirational as well as accepting environment in which to flourish. The island has an almost magnetic pull for artists, with many landing from all over the world and choosing to make it home. The result is a thriving local Artisan scene, one where art, fashion and jewellery are just some of the benefactors. Many of the fantastic products that come from the island came be found and bought at Punta Arabi Hippy Market and the happiness and positivity that flows through every stall is infectious, making it an amazing day out. You can even see some of the products being made in the street of the artisans.
