Silvia is amazing and she gives such a great background into the leather making process. Good deals and quality leather. Highly recommended if you're looking for a new leather jacket or other leather goods as presents

We had a wonderful experience in this beautiful store. The leather is simply exquisite and the quality of the service was very high. On one of our visits here, my niece and I had the opportunity to meet the charming and talented Silvia, a highlight.

The leather is of the best quality. The service exceeded expectations. The owner and staff are professional. A huge difference from the tourist stores on Florida Avenue. I purchased a leather coat and suit case.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
