While we do employ men, our goal - and that of Mauricio's - is to hire as many women as we can as we continue to grow our team. We even take supplies to some women in their homes (one has a handicapped son, and can not work outside of her home), so that they can work with/for us. It's important to us that we hire experienced, positive people no matter what gender or circumstance, but we expand our outreach to be more diverse/inclusive.
These high-quality, beautiful blankets made of a blend of alpaca and synthetic materials are functional works of art. They'll keep you warm on chilly nights and give your room style that speaks volumes about the person you are. Hand-crafted by artisans in Ecuador, Ecuadane blankets celebrate the customs and traditions of Ecuadorian villagers. Each purchase helps support the craftsmen and their families.
