Owing to Santa Maria’s natural resources of wool and clay, the handicraft industry consists of pottery, ceramics, wool sweaters, ornate sheets, blankets, towels, and other embroidery. Homespun garments include coarse woolen jerseys, embroidered linen shirts, and embroidered women’s jackets. Similarly straw hats, baskets, and various other objects traditionally made from wood, fish scales, corn flask, and metal are sold as souvenirs.
