Carmen Rivero and Antonio Rodriguez Palomo are the owners of leather and fur boutiques in Spain called Crivero Piel and designer of the brand Crivero. Antonio has been designing and selling leather and fur garments and accessories in his stores for over 20 years. Carmen joined him in 1999 and together they formed Crivero. In May of 2010 they were sponsored, amongst 28 international guests, by the Kopenhagen fur house to participate in a month long course. Three weeks were dedicated to the learning of how to classify fur hides, mostly mink, and the last was learning the ins and outs of buying in the world’s largest auction house, Kopenhagen Fur.
Carmen and Antonio are now certified by the Kopenhagen fur house as a knowledgeable fur classifier and regularly attend the auctions held in the Kopenhagen auction house. From their month long experience, studies and years of experience in designing, buying leather and selling in their boutiques they have an expert eye at picking top quality leathers and fur hides. Each leather and fur hide which is sold on the Leather Treasure website has been hand selected by them and is considered of the utmost quality.
