Tamo de Pasto is the art ✨of decorating woodwork with fine threads of straw or chaff. This traditional art form is found in the Nariño region, around the southern city of Pasto.

⭐️Tamo artwork uses flattened sheets of straw that the artisan dyes and slices into the exact piece needed, before being laid down piece by piece to form many intricate and mesmerizing patterns.

This delicate work takes steady hands and a great deal of patience, as well as knowledge and technique that is passed down and honed over years of practice.💫
