Our goal is to create fashion handmade accessories taking care of the details.
For this reason, I have decided to work with textiles made by members of the community of Otavalo in Ecuador, where they stand out for their ancestral knowledge in different areas and especially for making colourful fabrics that are part of the history and culture of Ecuador.
But not only I get inspired by the local communities in Ecuador, I am also I learn from the rest of ancestral communities in America. This is how European fashion and indigenous textiles from America are mixed to create unique designs.
That is why our name ACHIK, that means “Light” o “Illumination” in Kichwa language. 🌞
