Whether North or South, the Americas have from ancient times developed unique and colourful cultures. The Native Indians that originally populated these two continents gave rise to a variety of hand-made artifacts that can be in great demand today for their symbols of rich cultural heritage.
From rainsticks and pan pipes to dreamcatchers, we now have access, especially under the Fair Trade umbrella, to some of the most beautifully made native gifts.
