Program Details

We are located in an ancestral indigenous community of Otavalo.

Teaching some local communities the art of transforming the natural materials of the region into crafts, has enabled more than 80 artisans to both consolidate and assert their unique working techniques.

Since this first design work, strong bonds of trust and friendship have been built, so much that a few years ago permission was granted to carry out a territorial development project. Land was therefore sold for the first time to foreigners in the community, which proves a real connection between the parties.
