The textile mill

Maison Borel, Ayma’s historical workshop

Witness from another time

Maison Borel is a nineteenth century factory that still holds some of the most antique textile machineries of the world. Its looms and its history belong to the antique Buenos Aires.

Founded in 1894

It was established 125 years ago by French immigrants. It was an iconic factory from the Belle Époque of Buenos Aires which was well known for its specialized textiles. It is an undisputable tribute to Argentinean culture.

Nowadays Maison Borel is a singular destination in Buenos Aires which is assiduously visited by voyagers from all over the world.
