  bronze - silver craft shop

When in Banawe, try looking for those off the road craft shops. Banawe's local people are very artistic and creates beautiful crafts made of wood, silver, bronze and other natural materials.

I can't remeber the exact address of this particular shop but visitors may ask the locals for such place.

It is a good idea to buy your souvenirs directly through shops like these as you could get huge discounts (about 30 to 70%). Seeing them at work is an added bonus and a great experience too.

The lady at the middle of the picture is the daughter of the owner and also a smith. Very industrious and friendly...she invited us to taste the local wine that her father made out of their own rice crop.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

    When i lived in Banaue 20 years ago, the best at making silver jewelry was a man with the surname Blas, who lived on the hill opposite Banaue
