About the Designer
Shapuca, a husband and wife team out of Los Angeles works directly with artisans in Ecuador from a small region outside of Quito to produce beautiful wool products .All of our products are hand woven on wood looms,using the same traditional methods that they have used for hundreds of years. These artisans know what they are doing! But not only are the folks in Ecuador fairly compensated, they are paid directly without other companies or political figures taking a piece of the pie that isn’t theirs.
Unfortunately, there are no official certificates of Fair Trade in the U.S. For more information please visit the TransFair website:http://www.transfairusa.org
