A handicrafts center to know

The Tantanahue Handicrafts Center is a place that brings together artisans who teach and market their productions. We invite you to meet him.


One of the most direct ways to know, interpret and feel a culture is through handicrafts. Each element has traces, shapes, colors, that undress the history and traditions of the one who produces it. The Tantanahue Handicrafts Center is a place for the production and sale of  Jujeñas handicrafts.

Tantanahue is located in the town of  Humahuaca , precisely on Calle Buenos Aires 276. A feature that differentiates this mall from any other is the relationship that is established between craftsmen and buyers. Buying a craftsmanship is quite a different experience. A craftsman seeks to tell you its history and culture explaining every detail of the craftsmanship he seeks to sell.

Each piece is a unique and unrepeatable work, made with special techniques. No one will be able to take two exactly the same products in this place. The Tantanahue Center is not limited to selling only, it also has a training space. Teachers and students work and refine techniques and materials for each craft. Like every artist, everyone signs his work and also indicates the community to which he belongs.

In the handcrafted shopping we will find fabrics made with sheep wool, llama, alpaca and vicuña. Work made with different techniques such as two needles or made on looms. Ceramics and goldsmiths have their prominence; the first with utilitarian fixtures, the second is widely used in decoration. Gastronomy is one of the main resources to learn about another culture and is present in Tantanahue.

A different connection with Jujuy

The Tantanahue Handicrafts Center is open every day and is an ideal place to have a different connection with  Jujuy . There you can live the culture through touch, sounds, flavors, sight. Craftsmen have elements to encourage all the senses and convey their stories. An unmissable proposal in the Quebrada de Humahuaca.
