Shop the latest collection of Artesano at Blanq Sand! A wide range of sustainable hats and bags.
Artesano was co-founded in 2014 by Miami-based business partners and entrepreneurs, Claudia Estrada and Xavier Blum. Claudia and Xavier were both born in Guayaquil, Ecuador and are passionate about showcasing their homeland’s proud heritage of craftsmanship.
Artesano’s name, which means hand-crafted, was chosen for the same reason; all of their products are handmade. Most of their materials are eco-friendly and all of them are vegan. They are focused on producing our products in a responsible way to help take care of mother earth and all living things.
To the Artesano team, supporting local communities and protecting the environment is a priority and their social mission is to engage with local initiatives that empower communities with education and skills, helping local citizens and their families to overcome poverty and improve living conditions.
Artesano works with artisans in coastal and mountainous towns in Ecuador. These artisans work out of their homes in order to take care of their children and families. Their artisans have inherited the craft of weaving from previous generations. Their art form has been a gift passed down for thousands of years.
