Destination Maceió, second travel to the capital of the state of Alagoas.
Examples of filé handicraft from Pontal da Barra, the southernmost point of the peninsula on which Maceió is located (state of Alagoas).
Pontal da Barra
This final article (of a series of three) about filé handicraft from Pontal da Barra shows a dozen of examples of cloths and clothes of this type of handicraft. The bright colors are typical for the northeastern region of Brazil. The more modest colors are more suitable for tourists from the southern states of Brazil and foreign tourists. All pictures were taken with permission of the handicraft artists. The small square in each picture is an enlargement, in which details are more visible.
