Founded in 1980 by Don Boris Furman.
Boris Furman was born on June 24, 1916, in Santa Fe city. Son of immigrants of Jewish descent, he knew extreme poverty in his own home, condition that, instead of taking him down, forced him to find the ways to help those in need.
The life he led, in a tight-knit family, but with needs, encouraged Boris to embark a labor path at the age of 14, when he began as a cadet of a tailor shop, till he became the owner of the most important good-dress house in Buenos Aires: ROCHA CASIMIRES, where suits and shirts were tailored for those who chose the finest designs.
It was in 1970 when Boris decided to travel to San Carlos de Bariloche, and made the ascent to the top of the Otto Hill, which, those days, consisted only of a small 5x5 glazed cabin, used for surveillance by the forest keepers, but with such a majestic landscape that he fell in love at first sight.
