I have been looking for some way to purchase natural leather bags made in
Paraguay.Some of you have posted pictures of leather products.
Could anyone point me in the right direction as to how to purchase these products online?

I realize that this is not exactly a travel question,but after two year of searching for a answer I hope you'll forgive me.

    Most shops are at the Colon street near the small harbour of the capital Asuncion; see:

    You really have to take your time and ask several times for better items.

    The general problom with Paraguayan leather is, that it's just dried and not prepared (argentine leather is much better).
    I have seen examples of dried leather with shoepolish only on it.

    Nonetheless you can buy good quality (thick) handbags and seats.

    And than there is the border with Brazil. It's mostly imported goods there.
