People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe.
CABUYA handmade is an ethical design brand. We aim to revalorize the Ecuadorian artisanship under the conscious concept of fair trade linked with contemporaneous design trends from all over the world.
Our products are hand-made by Ecuadorian artisans.
We are associated with women communities native from the Andean region, highly qualified, to create bags and accessories made with endemic natural fibers.
Offer to the world high-quality products evidenced by their design and materials while preserving the ancestral legacy of the techniques used to create them. This will allow us to empower indigenous women’s skills transmitted generation after generation.
In CABUYA handmade we want to share with you the origin of our products, the hands of the ones who created them. We tell you their history and the place where it comes from.
Every detail has been carefully thought out by our team to convey a brand experience that inspires creativity, transparency and commitment to Ecuadorian artisans.
We aim to help indigenous women to improve their and their future generations’ quality of life by providing them a livelihood while preserving their ancestral traditions.
Traditions that are in danger of extinction product of the massive migration of younger generations who seek better opportunities in the cities.
We want Cabuya Handmade to be a company recognized worldwide for the social contribution to these communities, for encouraging a conscious outlet for responsible consumers, and for showing a new design perspective to local handicrafts in Ecuador.
