Shopping in the Amazon is a lot of fun! Here are some examples of typical handicrafts sold by villagers or in handicraft shops in towns such as Iquitos and Leticia. Most handicrafts are made from sustainable harvested products such as palm fiber (e.g., hammocks, bags, etc.) or calabashes. However, some products are made from rare woods or animal parts. These should not be bought as they encourage exploitation of non-sustainable natural resources. Certain products, such as skins, skulls, feathers, etc. made from endangered species are illegal to import into most countries.
