Dominican Crafts

This country's rich artisanal tradition.

Beyond merely being a souvenir, many of the tanías (crafts) you'll find for sale in the DR have something special about them - and in Santo Domingo's Zona Colonial as well as downtown Puerto Plata and resort areas, you'll have ample opportunity to scope out a wide variety of wares in all manner of shops, markets, and street stands. The tough part will be all the choices. But they all share the fact that they are a strong part of Dominican folk tradition.
