Description

Come and discover La Boquilla and support an amazing project. The project Madres Cabeza de Familia y sus Cocos (Mothers Head of Family and Artistic Work with Coconuts) is an association of seven women. In 2008, they took part in a crafts-class sponsored by ProBoquilla and learned how to produce jewelry, silverware, containers, vases, belts and many other accessories out of coconuts and the best of it all is that they teach their skills to others!

The process of creating artisan work out of coconuts is not an easy process, the coconuts must be cleaned, soaked and cut as well as polished – it can be a very time demanding task. Join these women with their amazing skills and take a part in listening to their life stories.
