Taller de Cestería - Shopping San Agustín - Colombia

Through the open door of workshop on the road to the Parque Arqueológico, sunlight dapples the white-washed adobe walls of a small workshop. Within, strands of vejuco alín, a plant fiber, wave through the air as don Segundo weaves them into baskets and vases. Many times he carefully threads a bead onto the filament, adding colorful touches to his original creations.
