ABOUT US

Ecopura is a company that was born in Puerto Varas on the shores of Lake Llanquihue. Formed by people from the Los Lagos Region whose principles are environmental care and social awareness. In our products, weavers have a predominant role, which in their great majority are women from rural sectors and surroundings of the city of Puerto Varas, who through this handmade art manage to be an economic contribution for their families in addition to maintaining the traditions, cultivating the craft of stick tissue, loom, crochet and seams. In ECOPURA we are care about creating socially conscious, producing textiles with 100% natural fibers being an alternative to the traditional textile industry, causing a triple impact: social, economic and environmental. In addition, we work in harmony with the environment and under a socially responsible production model. Join and be part of the change! ... because we want clean water, fertile land, living wages and a sustainable environment.
