The Archipelago of Madeira is well-known not only for its magnificent Nature and breathtaking views, but also for its local products, namely Wickerwork, Madeira Embroidery, Madeira Needlepoint, Handicraft, and, of course, the well-known Madeira Wine. Wickerwork is one of the most important local products in Madeira Island. This industry began in the parish of Camacha, in 1850. Since that time, Camacha has been in the centre of attraction for locals and tourists. Most of the wickerwork is exported to many places, such as Canada, South Africa, USA and Italy. Today, wickerwork objects can be found in many places all over the island. You can also see and buy some of these objects online at www.madeira-in-a-box.com.
