About

Creation with Integrity

Gerardo began tying micro-macrame when he was 19 and decided to travel South America.

One of the aims of Elquino Art is to create a collective of artisans who work in cooperation. These artisans can help each other by sharing techniques, workspaces, and venues for sales. In this way the experience we have gained over the years can be promoted and shared among all, creating a more solid way of sustaining the individual or collective production of local artisans.

Traditional craftsmanship is what we do. First, because we value it. Second, it allows us to live outside of the box, live the simple life, live to create and to help others create.

You can find us at various markets and festivals throughout the Pacific Northwest. We would love to see you. Check out our Facebook page for updates about our show dates and times.
