The luxurious textile products from Ecuadane can either motivate your trip to Ecuador or help you relive a travel memory. Even the company name is travel-inspired: Ecuadane is a combination of Ecuador and Denmark, the home countries of the parents of the three founders.

Each of the company’s high-quality, handcrafted blankets is woven from an Ecuadorian blend of alpaca and synthetic materials created by artisans in Ecuador. Ten percent of all proceeds go back to these artisan communities.

The designs are breathtaking and the material is soothingly soft and comfortably cozy. The color and pattern inspiration for the Cotacachi Blanket Fire and Cotacachi Blanket Water both draw on the dormant volcano in Ecuador’s Andes Mountains. The more active stratovolcano in the Cordillera Oriental landscape of Ecuador inspired the color and patterns of the Tungurahua Blanket Polk-A-Dot.

Additional blankets have ski-chalet colors with designs reflecting winter sports and the Christmas holiday season. The company’s offerings are rounded out with a selection of gorgeous scarves, ponchos, handbags and jewelry.
