A cultural ambassador and a showcase of the culture of our country since 1942. Our mission is to keep the spirit of the Ecuadorian identity through the creation of each piece that is sold in our stores, so the moment that globalization arrives, what we are as a country does not disappear, that our origins remain forever. We have a deep social responsibility with more than a thousand Ecuadorian artisans who work with us. Our goal is for our crafts to reflect the wonderful creative potential that exists in our country. Our history makes us pioneers in the market, we engaged in Folklore more than 70 years ago, three generations of enthusiastic creative people have supported and managed to invent and re-invent new forms and languages of arts and crafts. Olga Fisch prevents the disintegration of craft tradition uniting artists and designers with artisans. « less
