Cristhian lives on the very edge of the town of Cotacachi. He loves it there; it is tranquil and quiet, with little going on in the neighborhood. He was born in 1986 in Cotacachi. Cristhian learned a lot about the leather trade by himself as a child, even though he had no teacher. In 2008, he took a course in leather-working and learned all he needed to start his own workshop in 2010. He met Chris for the first time in the Cotacachi market in 2012.
Cristhian started out making wallets. He likes making them – and everything else. He is very passionate about his work and would like for his customers to know that products made in Ecuador are good because they are all made by hand and of high quality. For designs, the function dictates how it will look. Of course, clients can modify them as they like. The natural looking leather comes from Columbia and the processed leather comes from local tanneries, particularly Ambato.
