Ikat

CARMEN ORELLANA

The Ikat technique works with 100% hand woven cotton, plant dyed (with the exception of black, which we’re working on alternatives for). The ikat textile, also known as ‘makana’, is handmade by 5th generation weaver Carmen Orellana in Bullcay, Azuay province. She was awarded the Excellence in Artisanship prize by UNESCO. Carmen was involved in establishing Ikat weaving as Immaterial Cultural Patrimony of Ecuador, which protects the craft from appropriation by other groups.

Sustainability

For each collection we use natural fibers, upcycled materials and organic dyeing recipes passed down by the grandmothers. Each piece is designed with a zero waste result in mind.

Craftmanship

We work with women who carry the craftsmanship of their ancestors; a knowledge that remains from Ecuador’s time as a renown source for quality handmade textiles.

social responsibility

Through our work, we aim to reclaim artisanal craft as the worthy and fairly paid profession that it once was within the communities that we work with.
