They arrived in Brazil in 1940, where they came into contact with the world of shoemaking and cutlery thanks to a small workshop of repairs and sharpening.
They dedicated to return to Spain and April of 1969 opened the first store of Las Burgas. In this year the store opens on the avenue Finisterre, open to the public from then until today. At its birth, Las Burgas was a shop selling and repairing shoes and knives, following the model of a restoration workshop in which Noe and Esperanza have worked in Brazil.
