They say that the handicrafts of every village are the most genuine expression of its inhabitants.
The weavers of Bella Cristalinas officially became an association in 2008. We look for a better quality of life for our families through our hard work. Bellas Cristalinas fabrics are known for their colorful designs as well as their unique images woven into the fabric. This is what sets us apart. As we develop our weavings, we contribute to the preservation of weaving, and promotion of the cultural identity of our people.
One of the greatest benefits we offer, through the use of high quality raw materials, is the high quality finished goods that do not shrink or fade. We use methods that do not pollute the environment.
We dye all yarns ourselves. Our specialty is the art of jaspe. Jaspe is a laborious process that requires a lot of skill and dexterity. It involves tying knots in the skeins of yarn and then dyeing them. This process creates amazing colorful effects of figures painted on the threads. The craftswomen of Bellas Cristalinas offer our guests demonstrations of the jaspe process.
