The Salento Collection

Nestled in the central mountain range of Colombia lies a small town named Salento.  Since the recent declaration of peace between the FARC guerillas that once reigned absolute control over this region, backpacking tourists have been flocking to this picturesque area to experience this long hidden gem. 

This colorful, but hard to reach, town in the cool Andean mists has established itself as the entrance to the mysterious Cocora valley, which features huge forests of the famously tall Andean Wax palms that nature lovers flock to see - as Condors circle above!

In the colonial town center, there is a square where local artisans hand-make  one of a kind jewelry pieces combining the arts of leather, jewelry, textiles, feathers, and beading that much like the high mountain elevations there, take your breath away.

These pieces are bathed in gold; the original lure that brought the conquistadors to this remote and beautiful land for you to enjoy.
