La Talabartería was founded in the early 20th century in Medellin, when Don Castor Arango having a store of field items and supplies, saw the opportunity to create his own saddlery to meet a huge demand at the time, especially for cattle herding implements and saddles. Having achieved a great reputation for quality and style, he began to send orders to other cities, and slowly acquired a modest fame.

Currently the company has a much broader product portfolio as it offers chairs and items not only for cattle herding, but for all equestrian activities. The original production techniques remain; the product offered is made entirely by hand with carefully selected raw materials. Product distribution is done through the Medellin store, where the production facilities are also located.
