"In five hundred years nothing has changed in the procedure, which was already applied by the Pijaos Indians. Nature provides the natural resources: along the banks of the Magdalena river that runs through the valley near the village, the needed clay can be found. 200 members of the 300 families of La Chamba live off the production of the Blackpottery."
