Traditional hand woven rugs in our gift shop

Today I visited the Senior Citizens Center where our traditional hand woven rugs are made.  This is Carlos and he spends an hour a day designing and creating the rugs which are made of recycled fabric and rice sacks.  These community members come to the center to spend their days together, making these rugs and many other traditional crafts, playing cards, dancing and eating a big warm meal for lunch.

 

We have shared our knowleldge of hydroponics with them and helped them to create an organic garden in the backyard as well as a mini-recycling center.  You can find the rugs in our Tiendita beside our restaurant.  rugs cendas
