Retail store of alpaca wool imported from Otavalo, Ecuador.  We also participate in special sales in fairs and events throughout the state.  Check our calendar of events to see when we are near you!

Our handicrafts are not only beautiful and unusual, but they also tell a story of success for the people of Otavalo.

After Independence from Spain, the Ecuadorian people took advantage of their skills for their own benefit.  That is why when you acquire an original craft, you are certain that you are giving some help to the creators.

Our handicrafts are imported directly from the town of Otavalo, and your purchase assures that we continue doing business directly with the artisans without any middleman.
