Carriel Production

Travelers who want to explore local culture can visit carriel workshops in Jericó. This leather bag, one of the symbols of the department of Antioquia, is distinctive for its many pockets, some of them secret. It was once widely used by farmers to carry valuables as they roamed the mountains.
