Wickerwork

Wickerwork Wickerwork

The wickerwork industry originated in the parish of Camacha in 1850. The area has an abundance of willow trees because the lands have plenty of water and these trees do well in thus type of soil.

After the willow branches are harvested, they are cut, stripped and set out to dry. Before being woven into any creation, the wicker is boiled to make it easier to bend and shape.

The wicker is then woven into pieces of furniture, baskets and the famous wicker toboggans used to ride downhill from Monte.

banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
