Mama Quilla is a small giftshop with handmade soaps, candles, earrings and knitting wear. This shop was set up by a small group of women in the community of Isinlivi with the aim to develop their own skills and generate a small extra income for their families. By working together in a group, they can combine Mama Quilla with their daily household tasks and farm work. A fantastic project worth a visit!
Mama Quilla’s soap creations are truly unique with local herb and flower extracts and their candles have beautiful natural colors. Their gift shop opens from Monday to Friday and you can visit whenever they are busy producing. At an additional fee you can also attend one of their soap and candle making workshops and take your own creations with you. A great way to connect with the locals!
