Before shopping at El Calafate, tourists should know there are many products that are not truly local. Here we suggest some sites to get authentic souvenirs from El Calafate.
Apart from the pictures of the glaciers, you can go back home with good souvenirs from El Calafate. But you should pay special attention because most products are not local. They come from different sites in Patagonia and the country. However, if you keep searching, you will find what you are looking for: good wool and knitted works, exquisite jams and true crafts made by El Calafate hands.
Andino Patagónica knitted works combine craftsmanship warmth with rustic design, everything at a very good price. Parkas and ponchos made of pure sheep wool, handmade threads woven in a loom, dyed with natural processes based on yerba, beet or calafate, are ideal to keep yourself warm with good taste in the austral cold weather. If that is not your style, you can choose ruanas, cardigans and other garments made with industrially processed wool.
For the children, natural color ponchitos with pastel flowery patterns or other kind of patterns are ideal. They will be warm and elegant.
