Craft Making Villages: Gualaceo & Chordeleg

OVERVIEW

Cuenca it is surrounded by colorful counties where expert artisans make high quality art pieces. In addition, be amazed about Ecuador, country of Orchids, getting to know and admiring of their unrivalled shapes and beauty!

ITINERARY

In the morning, our first stop is San Bartolomé, where craftsmen have been creating exquisite custom guitars by hand for generations. While in Gualaceo you can wander through local markets brimming with just-picked products. Learn about (and taste!) delicious fruits grown only in Ecuador before stopping at the home of a family that weaves one-of-a-kind shawls and ponchos on antique looms using dyes extracted from plants right on the property. Your next stop us in Bulcay to observe Ikat weaving, an ancient tie-dye process dating to pre-Columbian cultures. Then on to Chordeleg “chorro de oro” (waterfall of gold), a village specialized in jewelry, mainly gold and silver, with fine filigree work. Outstanding handmade ceramic pottery is also found here, along with the chance to observe people weaving Panama hats and other items made of toquilla straw. Another highlight of this trip is a visit to Ecuagenera, the most important orchid growing laboratory in Ecuador.

Be amazed by hundreds of exotic species, from exquisitely tiny to outrageously colourful as you tour the facilities and learn about the propagation and preservation of these amazing and beautiful plants. Enjoy a lunch on a local restaurant (optional).
