In this tour we will learn the interesting process of making these products, starting our trip in San Sebastián, a cute town dedicated to the art of looms. The San Sebastián handicraft is unique in the country, you can not find anything like it elsewhere and that is why working on looms has become a way of life for many of those who live in this pretty village.

We will continue our journey in one of the most famous craft centers in El Salvador for pottery in mud, Ilobasco. But it is not any type of pottery but this town is characterized by being a producer of miniature pottery. We will discover the artistic grace of the craftsman who is shaped in the clay that molds with his hands from the pre-Columbian era.
