Production, exhibition and sale of silk at Taller Las Hilanderas. Looms, spindles and insights into the extraction of raw materials from the cocoons of silkworms can be seen here. Silk production has existed on La Palma since the 16th century, and the elaborate craft is an important part of El Paso's cultural and historical heritage.
