Overview

Young uruguayan design and original art&crafts. The best shop in Montevideo to buy your gifts. Also you can have lunch, drink coffee with a delicious cake while you enjoy a book. You must visit the second floor and come by our art gallery and boutique, where you will find trendy fashion garments and accesories.
