Puma Verde Handcraft Store

The Puma Verde Handcraft Store, located in the lobby of Restaurant El Rincón Gaucho, offers visitors a helpful array of field books and guides as well as handmade gifts from some of the best craftsmen in Chile. Much care has been put into sourcing these products, which include honey, wool, wooden crafts, tanned hides, horsehair handcrafts, and souvenirs.

 


The store’s wool products are all made from organic wool produced at the farms that surround our sister park, Pumalin Park, where a cooperative of women work together on different wool products, such as sweaters, hats, throws and blankets. Tanned sheepskin is also available, tanned by women in Cochrane, the closest town to Patagonia Park. Cypress bowls, Mapuche and Chimbarongo woven baskets, and custom linen pillows, embroidered with some of the park’s local plants such as orchids and colas de zorro (foxtails), are the perfect way to decorate your home with a little taste of the Lodge at Valle Chacabuco.
