A family of German immigrants opened this marroquinería (leather-store) across from Plaza San Martin in 1943. The shelves are stocked with handcrafted handbags, apparel, and accessories for women and men. The merchandise reflects a range of fashion tastes, including cow-leather belts, wallets, and jackets in black and brown. There are also more exotic items, such as a bright red purse made of crocodile skin and fox-fur bed covers. Each piece comes from the offsite company factory, where local craftsman prep and hand-cut raw materials for tailoring, like Argentine sheep-leather and the skin of a capybara, a large rodent native to South America.
