ECUADOR

Location

Ecuador is located in the north-western part of South America, bordered by Peru, Columbia and the Pacific Ocean. It has been witnessing a magnitude of different civilisations from ancient Andean culture, Inca Empire to 19th century Spanish colonialism. Ecuador’s population is as diverse as its geography, from Spanish descendants to coastal inhabitants of Pardo, and from central highlands to coastal plains respectively. Truly Ecuador is a charming patchwork of ethnic, regional and racial identities.

Crafsmanship

Fused by such a ‘mega-diversity’, Ecuador’s craftsmanship is rich and eminent, giving designers limitless resources. Apart from exotic yet superb quality local materials and eccentric visual, what makes Ecuadorian crafts special, is the traditional artisanal knowledge that has been passed from generation to generation. Together with striking colour combinations and indigenous pattern, Ecuador artisan products are world’s masterpieces.

Infinite Possibilities

The most famous Ecuadorian product is undeniably the toquilla straw hat. But one of the stunning features of Ecuadorian handicrafts is the clever use and mix of many local raw materials such as nuts, beads, straw, wood, stones, leather, alpaca and wool. Together with striking colour combinations and indigenous pattern, the artisan products are world’s masterpieces. From the precise selection of materials, ancient dying processes to intriguing knitting techniques, this is the perfect platform for designers to combine old knowledge with cutting-edge contemporary design.

Asociacion de Artesanos Texal

One artisanal community that ABURY has been previously working with is the Asociacion de Artesanos TEXSAL. Located at 3550 meters above sea level in the Salinas de Bolivar, this small local organisation brings together 292 village women with their impeccable crafts knowledge. Our previous designer has not only been taught the exclusive techniques and given a privilege to use local materials, she has also been inspired tremendously from the fascinating stories of the people, and thrilled by the beauty of a breathtaking landscape.
