Artisan Squares

We are pleased to introduce “Tren Ecuador Handicrafts collection 2016, available in the 14 Artisan Squares located in restored railway stations across the country.

 

More than 100 artisans, carefully selected in their local communities along the railway showcase and sell their creations to tourists and locals.

 

Using different techniques and ancestral skills: loom and hand weaving, embroidering, leatherwork, jewelry, woodcarving, ceramics, lute-making, brocade, filigree, stonework…Our artisans translate the world around them through an artistic and aesthetic gaze that reflects about the memories of the railway and the imprint it left on the natural world.

 

Fashion, decoration, utilitarian pieces… in this catalogue you will find a small sample of our artisans’ talents working on different materials: Vegetal fibers, wool, cotton, wood, stone, copper, tagua –also known as “vegetal ivory” clay, metal, silver…

 

When you buy a souvenir or commission your company’s gifts from our artisans, you not only contribute to supporting local economies, but also help preserve the memory and heritage of the Ecuadorian railway.
