I've settled in San Cristobal with the intention of creating products and services that encourage local production and promotion of our beautiful heritage. I manage my own collection of leather bags and work with local talents that manufacture and sell chocolate, textile, liquor, traditional food etc. We want tourists, locals and entrepreneurs to learn and network with our production to reach out and consider buying, distributing or develop projects based on traditional resources and techniques, this is a hands on experience, dive into the artistic side of San Cristobal.
I'll include samples of traditional street food as we navigate our way around the markets.
