Our Factory in Ecuador
Set in the spectacular mountains of Otavalo, WinterSun Clothing is created in our own workshop where each garment is crafted by hand. We use special techniques to apply layers of wax, paint and dye to achieve breathtaking results.
Founded in 1983, our factory features large windows for natural light looking out to the mist-covered mountains and open-air pavilions where our talented painters create art on fabric.
Each design is a result of an elaborate process which may combine handpainting, wax resistant batik, hand stamping or screen printing. The result is one-of-a-kind wearable art that's as unique as you are.
Unlike most companies who mass produce, WinterSun produces made-to-order clothing in small batches. All our designs are painted on by hand. We apply low-impact, cold set dyes that dry in the South American sun and launder our fabrics by hand to prepare for cutting and sewing. Our team then meticulously crafts our signature garments for you to enjoy.
