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 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.
