Calle Juan de la Cierva 4 madrid
This lovely housewares shop in the Salamanca neighborhood specializes in the art of leather. It is a great place to find leather trays, chargers, ice buckets and chests even leather clad watering cans. The owners have a cattle ranch in Paraguay and workmen have covered everything from salt and peppershakers to bicycles and even Citroen automobiles in fine calf. The leather covered ice chests can be monogrammed and have become popular gifts as far away as Texas and California and are sold in shops in Paris and Long Island. In this original outpost, you will also find lovely china, crystal and silver pitchers and trays.
