More about Artisans in the Andes

Did you know that in part of the Andes Mountains of Ecuador, each village is dedicated to a specific craft—tooling leather, weaving straw, making jewelry, sewing clothes, carving wood, throwing pottery. Handcrafting is passed on from one generation to the next.

“Artisans in the Andes” founder, Tracey Krouse, says, “I want to pay the artisan a fair price for their work, one that covers life essentials, including education for the children of the family. I want the people who buy from me to know that they are uplifting others through their purchase and receiving high quality handmade goods that reflect the values and traditions of Ecuador.”
