Plegadora de madera  $290

Las plegadoras son herramientas indispensables para el origamista avanzado. Estas fueron realizadas por la comunidad wichí de  Misión Chaqueña (Salta, Argentina) utilizando madera de palo santo (Bulnesia sarmientoi) de descarte, sin dañar el medio ambiente. El palo santo es una especie no comprometida ecológicamente. 
La veta del palo santo combina verdes y ocres en un suave brillo. El logo del museo está grabado en láser sobre la cara superior de la plegdora. 
Al adquirir estos objetos no solo recibes una herramienta de trabajo noble sino que ayudas a la comunidad wichí a mantener las artesanías como medio de subsistencia.
