The purpose of this paper is to describe the development process of a form of production organization centered on the timber-yerba mate mill and the sawmill-tannin factory. This kind of activity developed in the North East of Argentina during the last decades of the 19 th century and the first half of the 20 th century. The term enclave is used to designate these hubs of activity with a spatial as well as a socio-economical meaning. They tended to set up a kind of physical isolation or spatial enclosure. These enclaves spread out on lands that had been recently appropriated to the indigenous communities. There they built up a territorial domain to which they gave a certain configuration that changed as the conditions of the original form of production organization developed.
