Craftsmanship in Formentera

Handicrafts are an important tradition on this island, where you can find unique, special objects made using ancient techniques. Gold and silver filigree, baskets and natural fibres such as esparto grass are some of the main products. The island also has a long tradition of jewellery making, particular cultured pearls and the trencadís technique in ceramics. In addition, Formentera has always woven farratges, which are handmade rugs made from sheep's wool. Formentera's charming crafts are available from the numerous markets and fairs that are organised throughout the year and you can find workshops and specialised shops in different parts of the island selling unique, special objects to take home as a souvenir of the island. In Formentera, handicrafts are a living expression of local culture and traditions, which is why they are a treasure to be preserved and disseminated.
