About this activity
We made sure the Colombian Handicrafts Shopping Tour focuses on taking you to handpicked places where you will find a wide variety of handicrafts and local products that are hard to find elsewhere. Mark our word, we will not take you to chain stores or shopping malls. We will however introduce you to merchants with integrity, those that work very closely to the producers that are a part of their commercial chain. The first stop of the Handicrafts Shopping Tour will be Plaza de Bolivar. There is not much shopping going on here, but some blocks away we will take you to a secret alley, that few people know about. It specializes in handmade wooden kitchen utensils, wickerwork and a natural scourer, that would be found at much higher prices outside of Colombia. After that we will head to the Artisan Shop at Parque Santander. This is the ideal place to get the world famous mochilas of all sorts and colors as well as other kinds of hand-woven items. Also, you will find alpaca fur and wool; teddy bears, sleepers and even phone cases made from these materials! Once done here we will walk some meters to the church of San Francisco, where southwest Colombian native people work on colorful bracelets, necklaces and earrings, all handmade with shakiras. For the last stop we have two options. The first is the largest commercial leather district of Colombia, located at 7 de Agosto. This is an area with several blocks of genuine leather workshops and retailers, where you will get amazing value for your money. The second option is traveling to the neighborhood of Usaquen, located to the north of the city. Here we will go to an ethnic handicrafts shop run by an NGO that helps native Colombian indigenous peoples all across the country through promoting and supporting fair-trade of their traditional handicraft work. You will have the opportunity to travel Colombia via the unique objects loaded with rare beauty and mysticism that you find here. You will learn about the history, elaboration and meaning of every piece. Choosing this location, you will also have 20% off for coming with us! Finally, we will drive you back to your hotel or any place of your preference within the city area.
