Kuna Molas from the San Blas Indians of Panama - Mola Art, also called Kuna Mola, is an amazing creation by the women of the Kuna or Cuna tribe from Central America.  Living directly on the San Blas Islands of Panama, these women create some of the most gorgeous pieces of art imaginable.  Using a special appliqu� process called �reverse appliqu�� the women take numerous layers of cloth, each of varying color.  These layers are then stitched together loosely while the top layers are fine-tipped cut with special scissors.  The cut edges are then folded back at which time they are stitched to the bottom layer.
Tagua Carvings from Panama - Imported directly from the Native Indian Artists that created these little masterpieces. Choose from Animals, Fish, Birds, and Reptiles - all native to the country of Panama that the carvings come from. The tagua nut has a strong resemblance to animal ivory, making it a wonderful resource for creating all types of beautiful things.  For many years, the tagua nut was used primarily for making buttons but with new technology and more affordable materials such as plastics, a decline began.  Even so, the tagua nut still has value in the making of other things to include chess set pieces, jewelry, handles for canes, dice, figurines, etc.
Tagua Carvings from Ecuador - Located in the northwest portion of Ecuador, a unique venture began called the Tagua Initiative was formed.  This began in 1990 by Conservation International as a means of creating economic incentives associated with the tagua palm nut, trying to find a way for the harvests to be sustained.  Because of this initiative, today we see almost 2,000 people belonging to the Comuna Rio Santiago-Cayapas, holding down jobs.  However, these jobs depend on the rainforest being left unharmed, allowing the tagua nut to continue growing.
Pottery from Peru and Mexico -  Ceramic work at its finest is illustrated in these colorful decorative vases. This vase depicts geometric and tribal patterns. Our selection includes Chulucana Pottery figures, Story Tellers, and a wide variety of other ethnic figures and vases from Peru and Mexico.
Mexican Blankets - Whether for yoga class or to add a little Mexican flare to your home decor, our fine Mexican blankets are the solution. We select only the finest hand crafted Molina Indian blankets. These thick blankets are truly quality.
Musical Art from Peru and Panama - The Ocarina is a handcrafted musical instrument that produces a sound similar to that of a flute.  This ancestral instrument looks more like a modern bike racing helmet than an instrument.  The Ocarina has been around for tens of thousands of years and played to create beautiful music.  In its basic form, the Ocarina was used in the Stone Age and some of the earliest models have been unearthed by archaeologists in Central Africa.
Day of the Dead figures from Mexico - �Day of the Dead� is a celebration in Mexico every November 1 and 2 whereby candles are lit on graves and food it put out as an offering to the dead.  Many of the Mexican people regard the orange and black monarch butterfly that migrates there for the winter to be the carrier of the souls of the dead.  This ancient festival has changed somewhat throughout the years but the focus remains the same � celebrating both deceased children and adult. 

Wounaan and Embera baskets from Panama - Wounaan baskets are woven from the chunga palm and other plant materials. The Wounaan baskets are some of the most beautiful basketry portraying plants - animals - fish - flowers - insects and geometric patterns. Handcrafted by the Wounaan and Embera Indians in the Darien Rainforest of Panama.
Decorative Vases from Peru, Mexico, and Nicaragua - Our selection of Vases include classic works from throughout Latin America. Products include many Pre-Colombian designs as well as folk art patterns.
Huichol Bead art from Mexico - To create bead art, the Huichol Indians place a thin layer of beeswax with pine resin onto a hollowed out gourd or wooden form.  Then, very carefully and meticulously, small, colorful beads made from glass are picked up with a long needle and pressed into the wax.  Using complex designs and symbols, the result is stunning.  Each piece tells a unique story about the legacy of this tribe, their religious beliefs, and the sacred deer.
Oaxacan Wood Carvings from Mexico - These wood carvings are extremely popular and because of their movement, humor, and vibrant colors, they look great in any home, office, or as a gift!  The design of each carving comes from the carver�s own superstition and imagination.  Since magic and myth are a huge part of the culture in this region, the Oaxacan wood carvings can be dramatic in design.
Pottery Figures from Peru - Choose from Chulucana dancing figures, Story Tellers, and more. Each piece is individually hand cast and painted.
Textile Wall Hangings from Peru and Mexico - You will also find tapestries depicting things such as flowers, birds, butterflies, and many other Andean cultural aspects.  All of the sheep wool is handspun, and then naturally dyed with native vegetable, mineral, and animal dye. 
Huichol Yarn Art from Mexico - Nestled in the Sierra de Nayarit, just north of Guadalajara, Mexico, you will find approximately 12,000 Huichol (Wee-Chol) Indians, a tribe believed to descend from the Aztec Indians.  This area of Mexico is remote and rugged, and home to one of the last tribes to exist under the Spanish rule.  The Huichol Indians still follow pagan beliefs, consider deer a sacred animal, grow corn, which is thought to be the source of all life, and use a form of communication called peyote.  Because of this, the core of the Huichol Indians consist of deer, corn, and peyote.
Yerba Mate products from Argentina - Pronounced yerba mahtay, this South American drink is very popular in Argentina and similar to tea.  However, what makes Yerba Mate so unique is not only its flavor but is beneficial ingredients as well.  In fact, this particular drink is so popular that in Buenos Aires and other cities in Argentina, people carry it around with them all day long, sipping as they go through their normal day, much as Americans would sip on soda.
