The Mapuche identity can also be appreciated in the crafts created mainly by women and that can be found in region stores, farmers’ fairs and markets. Insilver, there are beautiful accessories made for the female traditional outfit; of wool, the characteristic ponchos and belts; in leather, domestic use and collection work objects made from animal skin and internal organs; in basketry, trays and ornamental objects; in wood, domestic items as plates, religious objects and the typical seat or wanko; and, in ceramic, meaningful articles as the metawe ceremonial jar, among other pieces.
Some of the outstanding places to visit and buy regional crafts are the Fundación Chol-Chol and Casa de la Mujer Mapuche in Temuco. On the other side, Villarrica holds an acknowledged prestige thanks to the crafts made of Raulí wood, of a reddish-like color, and that is reflected in hundreds of sophisticated and rustic designs. It is possible to find artisans and local artists in practically all touristic areas in the region, offering their valuable work at different prices.
