4656 El Salvador, Buenos Aires, , Argentina

Some 25 years ago, antiquarian Ricardo Paz visited the dry forest of northern Argentina and found villages of artisans turning out colorful textiles and organic wood and leather furniture—a tradition that died down when the region was deforested to make way for farms. The huge store that Paz and his wife, Belén Carballo, opened in Buenos Aires several years later is an homage to these artisans, packed with century-old textiles hand-woven with geometric shapes, and antique and custom-made contemporary wood furniture turned out by artisans from the northern region of Santiago del Estero. Textiles, which are heavy on red and warm colors, cost anywhere from about $300 to $3,000.
