Fileteado typically used in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to adorn all kind of beloved objects, signs, taxis, lorries and even the old Colectivos 'Buenos Aires' buses. It's a type of artistic drawing, with stylised lines and flowered, climbing plants.

Filetes (the lines in Fileteado style) have been part of the culture of the PorteƱos (inhabitants of Buenos Aires) since the beginnings of the 20th century.
