Facón nace de la idea de crear un espacio donde se encuentren pedazos de nuestra tierra, desde lo artesanal hasta la moderno y contemporáneo, artesanías del norte y fotografías del sur, diseñadores industriales, artistas y artesanos. 

Facon es un amigo artesano, un trenzador de tientos, un labrador de plata, una tejedora paciente, un artista de la madera, una diseñadora creativa, un fabricante de sueños,

un silbador de zambas, un tallador de santos, un paisano con su rastra, un estudiante, una viajera inquieta, un inventor de cuentos, un fiel del Gauchito Gil, una criadora de ovejas, un recitador de poemas. 

Facón es solo un fragmento del hermoso país que tenemos.

From Argentina to the world

This is a boutique that could only exist in Argentina. The shop, which resides in a Palermo Viejo casona, features everything from pottery to rugs to leather bags, all made by local artists, artisans, and independent industrial designers. Best of all, it pulls double-duty as a wine tasting stop. The space was also recently remodeled, and introduced Salú, a chef’s kitchen that incorporates cooking classes into its repertoire.

Owner and art director Martín Bustamante travels across Argentina to remote communities, using his sharp eye to hand-pick unique pieces. He looks for beauty, energy, and cultural significance, in particular. The highlights of the collection include high-quality hand-woven rugs, carbon steel gaucho knives, leather and canvas backpacks, and purses made from chaguar, a plant fiber found near the Iguazú Falls. Facon has a direct relationship with the artists and artisans, and not just because they're hocking their goods—their goal is to empower rural communities in a sustainable way. That’s why they work with NGO artisan projects.

Go gaucho chic and pick out incredible hand-woven and naturally dyed rugs made from 100 percent wool, organic leather backpacks, and travel bags, or paintings and photographs by local artists.

And … what if we’re on a strict budget?
