Paraguay is known for its variety and richness in handcrafts, giving the country worldwide recognition in Crafts.
Paraguayan Crafts have exquisite handmade craft made by excellent artisans. They have learned this ancestral art and keep teaching it from generation to generation.
Ñandutí is one of the most asked and known textures, is similar to a spider net. It is built over little circular, square and rectangular modules, the artisan use to join the cotton fibber and make the piece. There is also flower designs inspired in local vegetation like mburucujá flower (also known as pasionaria). Another known work is Encaje Jú, also made in cotton and a little more thicker.
Ao Poi is the most traditional one, is very delicate and made also in white or vivid colors and embroidered with designs inspired in nature and geometry. The word Ao means fabric and Poi means slender.
Jewelry is very rich too in this culture. Filigree pieces are really asked. Artisans took these techniques from Hispanic ancestors and gave their unique touch making them very characteristic from this region.
