HOW ECUAFINA STARTED
Since her first footstep on Ecuadorian soil, the founder of EcuaFina, Rebecca Braak, was in love with the country, its people, the rich culture and handmade products. EcuaFina literally means: the most beautiful (fina) products from Ecuador. These products (often made from soft alpaca wool) include plaids, sweaters, hats, but also necklaces. Traditionally, these products are made by the Quichua Indians who live in the Andes mountains and live by trading homemade merchandise. She thought that these beautiful products could also enrich many European households and so the idea for her own store started to develop. But, in a way that suits Rebecca: direct contact with the weavers and for a fair price.
FAIR TRADE & DIRECT SOURCED
Many people today are familiar with terms such as Fair Trade and Corporate Social Responsibility, but Rebecca personally ensures that these concepts are adhered to for EcuaFina. How? Rebecca spends a large part of the year in Ecuador and is then in direct contact (direct sourced) with the Quichua Indians. For example, she knows first-hand that making a Panama hat takes at least two days, for example, and that the weavers choose their own wool when the alpacas have just been sheared. The special skills that are passed down from generation to generation don't just keep old traditions are alive, at the same time the Quichua are fairly paid for their merchandise, allowing them to build an equal existence.
