Folklore Olga Fisch Handicrafts - Gallery Quito - Ecuador

High quality and filled with the rich history of Ecuador, exploring the store is similar to wandering a museum, except that you can purchase everything that's on display. Folklore Olga Fisch specializes in high-quality handicrafts, founded by legendary collector and artist Olga Fisch - who holds a close relationship to the artisans herself. Their tapestries and rugs are pretty much recognized worldwide. Take note of this place, because there's unique items you probably won't find anywhere else (especially not at the local markets).
