Weaving in Charalá

Charalá, a town that is located 40 minutes south of Socorro, is a destination where travelers can learn about the local tradition of weaving with organic cotton and natural dyes. In Corporación de Recuperación Comunera del Lienzo (Corporation for Restoring Community Weaving), we find the Museo del Algodón (Museum of Cotton), where they sell backpacks, ruanas (a Colombian poncho), and shawls.
