Can't say enough about the wonderful people, service and goods at Silvia y Mario! We had a leather jacket custom made and purchased many other leather and cashmere items including jackets, briefcase, pocket book and sweaters. We compared with many other shops on Florida and in Villa Creso and without hesitation I can say the service and quality found at... More

We had two custom leather jackets made and we love them. There was a slight issue with stitching on one and the fix it no problem. Cassandra helped up on the first visit and she was so very helpful. We met Silvia when we picked up our jackets and she is just amazing.

Sylvia personally attended us, insured that the leather jacket I purchased was tailored to my complete satisfaction (even paid the tailor extra for modifications and taxi to our hotel!!!) and treated us like royalty! Wonderful leather products, very reasonable prices, and service beyond compare. Can't imagine anything like this in the US!! Additional customized purchases by email also VERY easy... More

We had custom vests made doing everything via email, describing what we would like, from the color, basic style and leather. Ariela worked either us, sending sketches, asking for measurements and offering advice. The finished products were perfect! Everything was done in a timely fashion without a hitch. If you can visit one of her shops, I know you won't... More

Had I been left to the mercy of the other "workers" in the shop, I would have brought my business elsewhere. I am not going to bash them by name or description since that is not my nature, but it was clear to me that Judith is someone truly representative the quality of the amazing leather products available at Silvia...
