Rumiñahui/

CRADLE OF ARTISANS
Rumiñahui Canton, homeland of skilled artisans whose works are prized worldwide, is famous for the jewelry handicrafts which have gone through the international interest since our jewelers besides exporting finely finished jewelry, have performed important works in other countries as well. Artisans in hat craft, shoemaking, wax, carving in balsa and tailoring also stand out. These activities can be seen in the workshops located downtown Sangolquí. The medals and prizes that are given to famous people and important visitors to our country are made in those artisan workshops, on request of the National Government.
