Focus on… Cottage industry in Ecuador

Handicraft still remains a booming sector in Ecuador. A great number of Ecuadorians choose the same path as Patricio and turn their craftsmanship into a source of revenue. Incidentally, the biggest handicraft market in South America is located two hours away from Quito, in a small Ecuadorian town called Otavalo, where all the artists and craftsmen of the area join together to showcase and sell their production.
