Directions to Olga Fisch Folklore
This wonderful shop showcases the very finest art from the very best Ecuadorian indigenous artists. Indeed it is so revered that previous customers have included people such as Bill Clinton, Rosalynn Carter, Luciana Benetton, not to mention the thousands and thousands of tourists, giddy with awe.
It all began with a Hungarian artist who went by the name Olga Fisch. She moved to Ecuador back in 1939, the year that WWII broke out, and it took no time at all for her to understand the incredible potential of the artistry within Ecuadorian folklore.
It appears she was more aware than anyone of her visionary gift, as she said her greatest attribute was to 'know how to recognise quality in a work of art'.
In time, she began bridging the gap between traditional art and that of the folk variety, and even dabbled in art herself, creating tapestries and rugs that have since become very famous indeed.
The shop now contains high-quality Ecuadorian rugs, tapestries, hardwood tiles and jewellery, and as well as Quito there are branches in Guayaquil and the Galapagos Islands.
The shop ensures that all its products are eco-friendly and actively encourages its artists to use sustainable materials. The store in Quito also contains a small museum which will tell you more about the history of this special brand - this is the main shop, and there are several more, in Quito, Guayaquil and also the Galapagos Islands.
