  • Very cool idea kind of pricey.
  • Price is relatively higher than most local souvenir shops, but it has good placement and set up. The staff claimed it is fair trade and therefore there is no flexibility on pricing.
  • Much smaller than shown on website
  • A very nice place, with products of excellent quality, a unique service: a tour in which explain you how the product, has been designed by who has been designed and how it will impact the community purchase that you do; recommended 100%
