Mrs. Livia is among the last remaining artisans of Bucharest who still work with leather. When she heard for the first time the word “marochiner”, more than 50 years ago, she thought it must have something to do with manicure. Since then to now, the distance is directly proportional with the multitude of bags, shoes, belts and other wonders that she creates and sells daily in her workshop on Calea Șerban Vodă.
Calea Șerban Vodă, nr.100
Right across Hanul Berarilor, very close to Natiunile Unite Sqare, in a building that seems from long ago each morning is sitting in the doorway Mr Oscar, a leather worker doing this job over 60 years now. Together with his cat, the kraftman speaks dearly about his kraft that was passed on from his father that has worked in the same shop. Here the cat goes meaw while the Mr Oscar works at a leather wallet or some leather belt.
Strada Apolodor, nr. 2
“Prăvălia lui Virgil” is an excelent example of someone that is said to be “in tune with the trends”. Mr Virgil has always paid attention to how he can accomodate the client’s whishes and to all the novelties. When he is at the shop he wears all the time an leather apron handmade in his shop. Here you can mend fur clothing, shoes, one can shapen scissors, duplicate keys, paint leather, but one can also create from scratch leather products.
