The selection is amazing; so many colors, sizes, types of leather! I loved several selections. Both my husband and I went home with beautiful leather jackets and he also got... More

I am not a big shopper, but this store was excellent. From the staff to the unique leather products, I really enjoyed my experience here. If you are looking for great, memorable items from your trip to Argentina, I would absolutely recommend stopping by this store.

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.

After hearing about the store from a local family, I checked it out. My cousin sent me a Nordstrom's link of an Iro Ashville jacket ($1200). Sylvia herself reviewed the photos with me and then worked on three iterations of the design until she had it down perfect. 2 fittings, she used additional materials at her own cost to get... More

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.

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
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. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
