Curagua

Traditional knowledge and technologies related to the growing and processing of curagua play a significant role in moulding community identity in the municipality of Aguasay. Men extract and process the plant fibre, due the strength required, which is used by women to weave artisanal goods like the hammock - a traditional emblem of the region. Promoting cooperation and helping to overcome ethnic, sociocultural, and gender barriers as women are considered important income providers, transmission is mainly within families through oral tradition.
