From 9 to 15 April in Lazaro Cardenas Park …
Do you like carved furniture? Do you like embroidered clothes? How about the rich rice bread, golden brown and crispy, traditionally prepared by Soyatán women? From Monday April 9 to 15 there will be an exhibition and sale of Soyatán artisan products in Parque Lazaro Cardenas, Puerto Vallarta.
Here is where you can find and buy home furniture for living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. Find headers, dividers, rockers, chairs and many ornamental and useful items made of wood, with carving techniques in the Baroque style. All items are created in fine woods such as mahogany, cedar and parota.
The main concern is that people who live in Soyatán (in the mountain area near San Sebastian) have a jobs that allow them an income. “Rural employment sources are scarce and we want our young people do not leave their town.” There will be 6 women artisans who produce openwork and embroidery. The typical food of this community will be served.
The artisans of Soyatán also take orders for custom furniture, thus, if you can not find the furniture of your choice, it may be ordered for delivery. Soyatán has an office in the delegation of Ixtapa, where they receive orders. In the 5 previous years this festival was held in Soyatán. To increase exposure, it will be held this year in Vallarta.
