Photos from Bogota’s Famous Leather District, El Restrepo

In a small neighborhood in southern Bogota sits a dynamic community of leather workers, designers and vendors. It's no coincidence that this neighborhood, El Restrepo, is the namesake for our company. A short stroll through this historic leather district offers tremendous insight into the leatherworking community in Colombia. In El Restrepo, leather is more than a commodity. A whole community has formed around leather, carving out a space for creative connectivity. Here are a few photos we snapped while wandering through Restrepo the other day.
