Video: Shopping for Leather in Cotacachi, Ecuador

In this video, International Living editor Jessica Ramesch spends a day in Cotacachi, Ecuador. Though Cotacachi is a tiny town, it has a big reputation for fine, custom made leather items.

Find everything from purses to saddles in surprisingly modern styles. Have a boutique back home? This is the perfect place to hand-select items that will compliment your wares. The goods are so good, Jessica had half a mind to start a virtual leather boutique and peddle the items in the First World, where similar products cost much more.
