Gallery Alma Blou’s Gift store offers locally handmade souvenirs.
This is unique for Curaçao, as most handcrafted products are imports from foreign countries.
Formerly driftwood used to be a very popular material to work with. The wood has been in the ocean for years making it smooth and very much suited for creative uses. Calabash and coconuts are other popular materials used for very unique gift items and musical instruments. Nowadays our artisans are highly creative with recycled materials. This gives a dynamic and interesting diversity of local hand made products.
While visiting our souvenir shop you will go through the main building of landhuis Habaai.
This is Gallery Alma Blou, the largest gallery on the island.
On display is art of Curaçao most well known artists, but we also exhibit Caribbean artists.
Landhuis Habaai is also known for their special collection of books regarding the different aspects of Curaçao;
its people, its flora and fauna, artists and more. And we carry a selection of typical and classical local music.
A special section is dedicated to real Curaçao imagery, such as panorama’s of Punda and Otrobanda, maps of the island, cheerful paintings and imprints of old city scenes.
During gallery opening hours art lovers may enjoy the artistic atmosphere while sitting under the mango tree maybe writing an artistic card to friends or family.
