Perfect Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift

Herde de Ferme is a collection of modern, luxury accessories and home décor utilizing alpaca fleece. This incredibly versatile, organic and sustainable natural fiber, handcrafted in the mountains of Peru, is known for its fashionable style paired with unparalleled function.

Founders Dee DelBello and the late Al DelBello shared a great love for animals. Together, they adopted many pets, which today include dogs, peacocks, chickens, guinea hens, llama and alpaca on their farm in New York state. “Herde de Ferme” (farm herd) is an extension of their dream. With the team: Mauro Adornetto, Peggy and Michael Lichtenstein, Karen Pinto and Dan Viteri, Herde de Ferme has a “Designed in New York and Made-in- Peru” collection of beautiful accessories for you and your home.

Because it’s as soft as cashmere, with an integrity that is warmer and stronger than wool; its fiber is hypoallergenic and maintains a luster like silk; and it creates a lower carbon footprint than any other luxury material.

Socks: FEATHERS-GRAY

$35.00

They are constructed of 75 percent baby alpaca enhanced with 15 percent silk and 10 percent lycra for a perfect fit whatever your foot size.

Throws: DAWN

$290.00

Year-round medium-weight throw featuring soft muted tones in a plaid design.

Handbags: BEST PAL

$475.00

Just right for every occasion, this fur handbag will indeed become your best friend.

Dating back to ancient Incan civilizations alpaca living on the plateaus and mountains of Peru, provided a luxuriously soft fleece reserved for royalty only. Because of its versatility and uniqueness alpaca items can be worn 12 months a year. The extremely fashionable fiber can produce a tissue-weight shawl for breezy, warm summer nights or be spun into a chunky knit hat to ward off a chilly winter day.

Due to the high altitudes and harsh winters in the Andes, some of the herd does not survive each year. As a result, fur pelts are collected by the shepherds and sold to the apparel and home décor industries. Incredibly luxurious, alpaca fur can be chic and casual. It comes to us as a result of a natural-occurring event and we are able to create unique fur products that are ethically and sustainably sourced.

A portion of Herde de Ferme sales goes to benefit Green Chimneys Farm and Wildlife Center, a worldwide leader in animal-assisted therapy and educational activities for children with special needs.

Located in Brewster, New York, Green Chimneys has students ranging in age from 5 to 17 facing issues such as depression, trauma and autism-spectrum disorders. The animals play a supportive role in the form of educational and animal-assisted therapy allowing students to thrive while discovering their strengths, developing confidence and coping skills, as they care for the animals.

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.

The world’s first climate smart skincare

Unlike many skincare brands that provide products based on skin type, Pour Moi Skincare knows that the best way to care for your skin is to focus on your current climate. Ever notice how your skin reacts differently to temperature and humidity changes? Every Pour Moi product includes the brand’s unique Climate Smart Moisture Complex HyalurTruf+: a proprietary blend of multi-molecular, scientifically advanced Hyaluronic Acid with pure White Truffle extract from France, rich in amino acid and valuable sugars. HyalurTruf+ is always at work, smartly adjusting to skin’s changing needs in different climates (natural or man-made) by drawing water into skin when humidity is above 50% or counteracting dehydration when humidity is too low.

The brand currently offers four Day Creams based on climate:

  • Temperate – mild temperatures (45°F — 75°F) and average humanity (45% – 65%)
  • Polar – low temperatures (20°F — 45°F) and low humidity (5% — 45%)
  • Tropical – high temperatures (75°F — 120°F) and high humidity (65% — 100%)
  • Desert – high temperatures (75°F — 120°F) and low humidity (5% — 45%)

Visit Pour Moi’s website to see which Day Cream is best for you. There’s even a how-to page if you’re not sure!

 

Pour Moi Beauty LLC is a U.S. beauty brand specializing in premium skincare, co-founded by European beauty & wellness expert Ulli Haslacher and business veteran Frank Assumma in Upland, California.

Being a skincare enthusiast and frequent traveler, Ulli paired up with a team of International scientists to secure a new niche in the beauty world—climate smart skincare.  With the support of her renowned team , Ulli abandoned the common strategy of selecting skincare by skin type and replaced it with a revolutionary climate strategy in which skincare is selected by climates.

Doing something different – educating women and men about a ‘better’ way to do skin care – is difficult and takes courage for an indie beauty company like us, especially in the face of conventional skin care wisdom that has misdirected the industry and consumers for years.  As a brand we are committed to doing so, because we know that our mission and our climate-smart skin care strategy is the right path forward for healthier, more hydrated skin.”

– Ulli Haslacher, Founder & President

With scientific research from all over the world validating that skin functions change in different climates, each Pour Moi product delivers superior beauty results with innovative formulations that adapt the skin to optimize hydration, moisture, and smoothness across various climates (polar, tropical, desert, temperate, mountain (coming spring 2018), and marine (coming summer 2018), and protects skin in man-made environments (heating, air-conditioning, and pollution).
