There is a remarkable similarity between the traditional weaving techniques practised by indigenous communities in Costa Rica and women in Bhutan.  The South-South Cooperation Project has enabled the exchange of knowledge with regards to the commercialisation of this cottage industry in Costa Rica.  To maintain authenticity, the industry has developed a label which guarantees genuine indigenous production.
