Owner description: Miguel Andrango and his family demonstrate the fascinating traditional yarn spinning and backstrap-loom weaving process for visitors. After the demonstration, visit their gallery where you can purchase beautiful weavings to remind you of your Ecuadorian experience. DIRECTIONS TO THE WORKSHOP: Option 1, from Cascada de Peguche: take the road from Cascada de Peguche (waterfall) to Lago San Pablo. At the top of the first hill, take a left toward Agato.

After you cross a bridge, take your first left toward Cascada de Peguche. At the top of the hill, turn right toward Agato. At the first intersection (Agato's main street), turn left. The workshop is one and a half blocks down on the left.

“Miguel Andrango”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Miguel is a wonderful person and master weaver. His demonstrations of the process he does step by step is fantastic. His artistic products are sold at fair trade. The quality is the best we saw in Ecuador. Wanted to put this man in my pocket and bring him home.

I was able to buy some beautiful woven works, at fair trade prices. Miguel is a cultural treasure that should not be missed!
