Our story

by beheerder


27 years ago we were young and adventurous backpackers on our first travel to South America. It was love at first sight: the continent stole our hearts with its magnificent nature, colourful culture and welcoming people. We never left. We still spend about half of each year in Otavalo, located in the north of Ecuador, to support our production and our team of around 700 knitters. We are closely involved with each step of the process, from the design phase to wool dyeing and knitting and the distribution of our products. INTI focuses on items that are hand-made with respect for nature, cultures and people. Stitch by stitch each piece is lovingly developed from high-quality materials, on two needles, by local knitters working in their own homes. To us this is the essence of sustainable fashion.
