Artesanias El Tecomate
Carlos Alfredo Mancia and Leticia Valdivieso Mancia
Carlos Alfredo Mancia produces a very unique type of art: the painted tecomate, which is a vegetable traditionally used to transport water. It is a very important part of the culture in La Palma, and as a result, when Mancia started his own workshop in 1995, he named it Artesanias El Tecomate. There are now four members of the business, which also specializes in various types of painted seeds used in reproductions of biblical scenes and in other products.
Specialties: Painted tecomates, painted wooden crafts, painted and varnished seeds, unique designs.
