Welcome to Paraguay
Nestled in the heart of South America between Argentina and Brazil - Paraguay is a relatively unknown country that is home to an incredibly unique and gregarious artisan community.

Most of the artisan community continues to use traditional techniques and designs that were passed from previous generations, though, recently Paraguay has been experiencing a type of renaissance. Younger artisans are merging these traditional techniques with modern designs that create truly one of a kind results.
