Multi_Colored_Leather_Shawl_005Solid Brown Leather Shawl 005These exquisite, one of a kind creations were designed and hand crafted by artisans of Ecuador. They will delight and amaze you as you feel the extreme softness and drape yourself in “art you can wear”. Enjoy the compliments you will receive when you become the first in your circle to own your very own personal Leather Wrap.

The combinations of colors, patterns and crocheted stitches are unique to each garment. Although one size fits most, individual artisans have created these luxurious wraps, therefore, sizes will vary slightly. Most are triangular and approximately 5 ½ feet wide by 3 feet long at the point.

We would love to hear your personal experiences after you receive your new Leather Wrap. May you wear it in good health and happiness.

A percentage of each wrap sold will be donated to the Cotacachi , Ecuador High School Scholarship Program.(Raising monies for secondary education of Ecuadorian children)

Ecuadorians are very environmentally conscious.  In fact, they are the only country in the world that protects the environment under their Constitution!  No animals are slaughtered to obtain the leather for our Ecuadorian Wraps.  One of the reasons we can sell them so inexpensively is that the cowhide is new, but remnant leather.

Most people would agree that education is the primary determinant of a country’s long term economic success. In the US, we take for granted that children will go to high school. Further, according to the Department of Labor, approximately 70% of high school graduates were enrolled in some sort of college.

It’s a lot different in Ecuador.

A typical Ecuadorian indigenous family has a monthly income of just $200. But it costs $300 to pay for the yearly incidentals associated with attending high school. (These include such things as snacks, supplies, transportation, and uniforms.) The result
is that for the majority of students, education stops after the 6th grade.

It’s even worse in rural Cotacachi where less than 9% can afford to stay through graduation day!

For just $200 – when added to the family’s contribution of $100 – a student can go to High School for a full year.

Please help with your purchase of a wrap today. We will donate on your behalf 50% of the profits to Cotacachi’s Scholarship Program.

Just as importantly, your purchase also provides work for the adults in “Leather Town”.
