Cristobal Balenciaga was raised in a small village in Spain's Gipuzkoa region, with his widowed mother who worked as a seamstress to make ends meet. Despite having no formal training, Balenciaga opened his first boutique in nearby San Sebastián in 1919, followed by locations in Madrid and Barcelona. Originally the boutiques were called ‘Eisa’ after his mother's maiden name Eisaguirre, but they were forced to close during the Spanish Civil War. However, the tenacious Cristobal Balenciaga reopened in Paris in 1937, officially launching the house of Balenciaga.
