  • I love the variety of products. They curate their offer really well.
  • This is a must see in Quito. Olga Fisch may have departed her earthly residence, but her legend lives on. See Ecuador's handicrafts turned into art. Her efforts working with artisans over the decades have created works that go beyond the level of mass produced handicrafts. While handicrafts absolutely claim a necessary place in the heart of Ecuador, those that have taken it to a different level are the difference of "painting by the numbers" to art by Guayasamin. Just one persons view, not necessarily shared by all.
  • They have beautiful things for sale!
