BALEARES is the Spanish region where less money is spent on clothes, according to textile business association ACOTEX. 

The study displays that on average, residents in the islands spend €215 a year on clothing items. 

This is around 28% less than in the rest of Spain, where the yearly average expenditure per person is almost €300.
