Olga fisch folklore our mission is to introduce design, quality, color and flavour to our identity. Our purpose more than having a fair trade seal is of a profound social responsibility with more than a thousand ecuadorian artisans that work hand by hand with us and for us. Our duty is that an important percentage of our income be given to our artisans and be devoted to a constant improvement of the production of our local talents. Our goal is that our handicrafts reflect the amazing creative potential of ecuador. Our history makes us forerunners in the market. For 70 years we have been dedicated to our handicraft tradition, for 70 years we have been working in our mission, purpose and vision. It is now three generations of enthusiasts and creative people that besides supporting the artisans have developed and created new ways and means to show what ecuadorian crafts are all about.

Incredibly well curated selection of traditional and modern, traditionally-inspired goods, including clothing and accessories, home goods, and some art. Look upstairs to see 3 generations worth of amazingly well preserved authentic artifacts. This is no family collection - truly museum-quality assortment and curation.
