Javier Manjarrés’ roses are not your typical long-stemmed reds. They’re beautiful, yes, but more in the way that poetry, history and art are beautiful; they smell of old parchment. And you can read. These particular roses are made from paper found in the back room of a pharmacy in C/Carme, the stem is decorated with recycled dowel rods from Roman blinds and attached to the petals with old silk thread. If you’re looking for a rose that will never wilt, you’ll find it in this shop in the Raval.
