Shopping

Rantepao is great for woodcarving, weaving and basketry – the main crafts of Tana Toraja. Look for specialities from the region's villages, such as Mamasan boxes (used to store magic, salt and betel nuts), huge horn necklaces and wooden figurines, and high-quality woodcarvings by Ke’te Kesu' and Londa carvers, such as trays, panels and clocks, evocative of decorations on traditional houses.
