Miniature figurines made from the nut of a palm tree. Once known for buttons, this nut is known as “vegetable ivory.” Many artisans derive a living from this handicraft in Ecuador. Some have even taken it to a much higher level.


Handicrafts are usually those somewhat inexpensive items you search for to define your trip to places unknown to create memories. I can teach you about many of the unique items found, and in many cases exclusively, in Ecuador.


Some questions you may want to ask are:

  • What handicrafts are unique to Ecuador
