This shop’s origins lie in the partnership formed between Cesáreo del Cerro and Fernando Villaverde, grandfather of the current manager. The business was first established on Calle Concepción Jerónima, and was dedicated to the sale of leather and its use for shoemaking, handcrafted leatherwork and other decorative uses. The partnership continued until 1903, when Fernando Villaverde passed away. His widow took over and continued running the business on Calle Colegiata which prospered until today, when the fourth generation of the family is in charge. The business now specializes in the sale of ornaments, including all kinds of fasteners and buckles, as well as other materials related to leatherwork. In some cases, the work remains artisanal, though some manufactured pieces are also now employed. In any case, the articles produced are unique and highly specialized. The store’s customers include businesses and individuals who buy either directly from the store or through the internet.
