ABOUT ECUADANE:

The name Ecuadane is a combination of Ecuador and Denmark. The 3 young founders chose it to honor the countries where their parents were born. The Lund sisters love being together, discover cultures, traditions and wonders of the world. They started Ecuadane to be able to introduce others to the hidden treasures of little-known places. Ecuadane gives a substantial portion of its proceeds to charities.

THE STORY BEHIND ECUADANE

People meet and sweet music ensues, or so the saying goes. In our case, it became more than that. After visiting the village of Otavalo in Ecuador where our three daughters and we were spellbound by the delectable textiles made by the local Otavaleños we decided to found our company Ecuadane. The name symbolizes our Ecuadorian (Catalina) and Danish (Nicolai) backgrounds.

The desire to share the unique, hand-weaved products with the rest of the world was great, but we also saw it as an interesting opportunity to combine the traditional South American design with the simple Nordic style. It was also crucial that all production should have the greatest respect for the environment and that all textiles should consist mainly of recycled textile fibres.

A dream has been realized and today Ecuadane can offer the quality-minded and environmentally conscious consumer a range of sustainable, but also delectable and soft blankets and ponchos – and we plan to add more products. Today, Ecuadane is a family-run business with our three daughters at the helm. We are grateful for the chance to share the products of the Otavaleños with the rest of the world, which is why we have decided to give back. Therefore, we are donating 5-10% of our profits to Ecuador and various humanitarian efforts such as children’s hospitals, schools etc.

My First Christmas List – Gift For Him

Hi friends, I would love to share a news with you. I just got married in China and had my honeymoon in Philippines. Now I relocated from NYC to San Diego California! Why? Because my husband’ company transferred him from NYC office to San Diego office. Also because California is always our dream place. Now the dream comes true.

This is the view from a bar in our neighbor. Don’t be jealous of me if I tell you I still just wear a T-shirt and short today. Okay, finally I settled at La Jolla, San Diego and got time to work on the blog! The thing I want to work on is Christmas gift ideas. Because Thanksgiving is coming, we should grab the opportunity to get all the gifts in Black Friday big sales. The first several ideas are gifts for him, which I know it’s more difficult than “for her”. So I bring the solutions for you.

VINCE CAMUTO VIRTU EAU DE TOILETTE

$80.00 3.4 oz / 100 mL

$65.00 1.7 oz / 50 mL

Lifestyle brand Vince Camuto nationwide launched the brand’s newest men’s fragrance, Vince Camuto Virtu at September 2018. As its name suggests, Vince Camuto Virtu exemplifies appreciation of fine things—and the drive to reach for and achieve them.

The bold, aromatic fragrance mixes heat and coolness in a polished, sophisticated scent that enhances the effortless style of today’s urban man.

Vince Camuto Virtu opens with a sunny top note given fire by Crushed Peppercorn. Cool greenness emerges in the scent’s crisp, powerful body, a blend of Fresh Tree Moss and Haitian Vetiver. Tuscan Leather, Warm Cedar and creamy Indian Sandalwood round out the base for a clean finish.

The newest addition to Vince Camuto men’s scent portfolio was created in collaboration with IFF Perfumer, Laurent Le Guernec. “I wanted to create a new, signature fragrance for the Vince Camuto man who enjoys the finer things in life,” said Le Guernec. “This is a man who strives for excellence and appreciates when elegance meets luxury and bold excitement.”

Distinctive black patent leather wraps Vince Camuto mens’ signature rectangular bottle, embodying the brand’s enduring legacy, family heritage and commitment to innovation and excellence. Paying homage to the craftsmanship of the Vince Camuto fashion house, the patent leather is seamed with industrial stitching at the back of the flacon. The Vince Camuto signature crest medallion is centered at the bottle front, exuding strength, style and simplicity. A striking silver metallic box complements the bottle, making an arresting presentation.

This is definitely my first choice of the gift for him. Let him carries the smell which brings the beautiful memories of you. And this bold, aromatic fragrance that mixes heat and coolness in a polished, sophisticated scent is always a perfect choice.

To Discover the Undiscovered – About Ecuadane.

We are three American sisters with parents who were raised on different continents (Europe and South America) who through their love for each other and their respective cultures have made it a mission to share with us the gift of travel. Travel opens our minds and our hearts to new discoveries. Travel makes us realize that in essence we are all the same, but our culture and subjective experience mold us into beings that are all beautifully different and unique.  Through our travel experiences we have learned so much and have had the privilege of seeing how the singular talent of craftsmanship as it is applied in different cultures and seen through their varying creative lenses produces vastly different products and designs.  The detailed beauty that is woven into the fabric of a culture becomes visually apparent as it is woven into the fabric of the products they produce.

We love to travel, and even more, we love to spend time with our family. So we decided to embark on an adventure that would help us accomplish more of both! Thus, Ecuadane was born as an online market of curated short run, high quality products from around the world, exposing others to a piece of our journey, while supporting the craftsmen and women and the families that created them.  Families supporting families, sharing in the diversity of cultures, traditions and lifestyle. Curating great stories, and even greater products!

Our mission through sharing in our lifestyle is that we might create a community that supports, shares and educates – helping us all become more aware of the beauty of the human experience.

We are three sisters with big hearts and big plans. We are Ecuadane.
