The brand “Flor de Ceibo” was well known during the first Peronist government.

The shoes had a rough finish that differed quite from the usual ones. In other words, the name “Flor de Ceibo” was synonymous with low quality. This modality was extended and restaurants were obliged to include a menu “Flor de Ceibo”. Something similar was the case with garments. Every clothing business had to have a product that fell under this category. The fabrics sold at a lower price wore the “Flor de Ceibo” brand on the edge.

This product line was a proposal of the Peronistgovernment, which appeared in the 40s, in Buenos Aires yesterday.
