An assortment of amber macramé bracelets

These macramé are made in a series of community’s surrounding the small outpost community of Tosagua, Ecuador. These are low visibility areas with people living at or below the subsistance level. These individual communities each bring their own unique dynamic. The macramé is made in many different home style and community group productions. This adds diversity in resources and socioeconomic structure. Some are made as part of cultural preservation classes designed for skills training and job creation.

We use the community to produce a product that we use to raise funds for that community and others like it. This gives the community hope and alleviates helplessness. When the product is made it is made with love. In addition to this when you make a purchase here at Macramé Project it is showing love back.
