Our history on sustainability and fair trade dates back to way before these terms even became a thing. Olga Fisch, our founder, began Folklore as an effort to perserve traditional arts and crafts from Ecuador, during an era when they were not valued and often were even shawn upon. Through her tireless effort to preserve our traditional art, she empowered crafters around the region to not only learn to appreciate their ancestral art, but also make a living out of it.

For the last seventy years Folklore Olga Fisch has been committed to helping local artisans sell and distribute their craft at a fair price.
