Who we are
Ecuapaca is a website where you can buy handcrafted textile creations made by Ecuadorian artisans. We buy these products from local markets and sell them as is in our shop. We do not produce any of our items therefore, information about the products publish by us is directly translated from the sellers. This includes materials, care instructions, etc.
Textiles and materials
Ecuapaca purchases products from a variety of producers around different parts of Ecuador. These artisanal producers are not required by Ecuador law to have the materials their products are made from, verified to match what is on the tag. In other words, Ecuapaca publishes the materials that we are told or that are on the label of each item. We do not verify that the products are made from the materials the producers say they are made from since we buy directly from the artisans
