From my understanding (I did a little research while back) number of saddles (of good brands) are (or at least were) made in Argentina. Argentina used to be known for nice fancy saddles in past (not sure if it's a case anymore). Personally I have no problem with the saddle made there. My neighbor had old Argentinian saddle (no name really) and it was decent little saddle despite it was like 20 or 30 years old (I rode in it, just too small for my butt).
Unfortunately more and more saddles are made in Vietnam and India, and while they can look nice, from what I know the quality is low.
