the influence of pre-Columbian culture intermingles with gorgeous valleys, gullies and the mythical Northern altiplano where time seems to have stopped. The Northern area is a land of contraste, multicolour hills, slopes covered with giant cactus ("Cardones"). Subtropical forest and infinite salt mines. Also, it is an encounter with old idigenous fortifications and small adobe houses blended into the environment. Inspired by a fertile soil, many generations of gifted crasmen perpetuate a tradition of techniques and texture witch combine in unique pieces such as traditional loom fabric.
