This is our second trip to Buenos Aires. We're headed back there again! Bettina is incredibly reliable & honest. What we purchased from her two years ago still looks new! She is creative and talented and her studio is the place to go after you've check out the other places. Hope this helps!
The Concierge at our hotel recommended Bettina Rizzi for quality leather goods. There are other cheaper places but the quality is not like Bettina Rizzi. There are many styles of jackets/coats for both women and men -you choose the style, color, etc. and they take your measurements and make it for your body. The entire process takes about 4 hours from first measurement to the finished product. The customer service was outstanding and for a non-Spanish speaker like myself, they do speak English. The finished product (a black leather jacket) is beautiful, soft and supple and fits my body perfectly.
