One of the indispensable elements is a "Correfoc" handkerchief. Thanks to the handkerchief we protect the face of sparks and we can breathe much better.
This handkerchief is made from 100% cotton thick cloth. Basilisc de Mataró is sublimated on a polyester fabric and subsequently embroidered, thus achieving a correct cling on the fabric and durability in time.
The scarf is made entirely in Catalonia.
