Artisanal Handicrafts of the Yungas

The Yungas, or subtropical mountain jungles, have a rich biodiversity and cultural diversity.

The artisans of los Toldos in the Province of Salta belong to native communities and rural groups who still preserve the lores and knowledge of their ancestors, reflecting these in their handicrafts, using their traditional spinning wheel or “puisca”, natural dyes and traditional weaving techniques on floor and standing looms.
