Fundación Silataj

Fundación Silataj Review

This small handicraft shop is run by a non-profit organization that trades fairly with around 30 indigenous communities in Argentina. The shop smells like the aromatic palo santo wood used to make the trays, platters, cutting boards, and hair combs they carry. Other offerings include carnival masks, handwoven textiles, beaten tin ornaments, and alpaca jewelry. Prices, though higher than in markets, are reasonable; quality is excellent, hence the name in the Wichi Indian language which means "the best"; and you know your money is going to the artisans. Note that the store closes for lunch.
