The craftsmanship of the trinational region is rich in diversity, reflecting the history and culture of the Brazilian, Paraguayan and Argentine cities that make up the region. The products are a true mirror of the tourist attractions and the trajectory of the colonizers, especially the Guarani Indians.
The handicraft is produced by local Indians and artisans, who market their work in specialized houses, streets and fairs. They are carpets, bags, necklaces, clothes, hats, nets, hunting and fishing instruments, among other objects.
The main handicraft stores in Foz do Iguaçu are the Cooperativa de Artesanato de la Oeste and Sudoeste do Paraná (Coart) and Homemade Chocolate. It is also possible to buy these works in the streets and avenues of Ciudad del Este (Paraguay) and Puerto Iguazú (Argentina).
In Paraguay, the thermal bottles of tererê, and the harps of popular music stand out. Created by Itaipu Binacional at 1978, Coart has more than 80 associated, offering hundreds of pieces of pottery, wicker, porcelain, glass, recyclable material and crochet.
For those who prefer to look at the handicraft that tells the trajectory of the region, the Ecomuseum of Itaipu is a good tip. It houses objects with more than three thousand years found in excavations in the triple border.
