I specifically went to find this store. There taxi driver was unable to find it. He pointed to an area where a building had been destroyed. I also emailed and got no response.

Visited Monday at 11am when it should have been open. Rang the bell and waited for five minutes with no response. I would call before you make the trip.

A business to support
Oct. 2016 • Friends
Not only is the collection of art awesome, but the service is phenomenal. Alvaro, the owner, went above and beyond in helping us.

We had stopped in the shop while we were in Quito and fell in love with Eduardo Vega's work. We had 2 weeks of travel ahead of us so Alvaro allowed me to hold my pieces in the shop after I'd bought them- I returned to pick them up on my way out of the country. He also offered international shipping to my friend, and sent out the art the next day.

All the ceramic pieces were packed so well that they made it back to the US and Canada in perfect condition.

Very happy we had a chance to visit this gallery. My new vases are so beautiful and serve as a perfect reminder of my awesome trip :)

Support local artists and support this great shop!

Thanks again, Alvaro !

Amazing Store
Sep. 2016 • Solo
If you want to buy a souvenir from Ecuador this is the place to do it. It's full of Eduardo Vega's (Ecuador's best ceramic artist) ceramic stuff and a bunch of other local artists works. Alvaro who works the store is incredibly helpful and gave us great advice for the rest of our trip. He went out of his way to ship the items for us and made sure to do it at the best cost possible. The items in the store are beautiful and you won't find them anywhere but here and Cuenca.

Great store with beautiful handmade items
Mar. 2016 • Friends
My mom and I visited this store and loved it. The store is nicely laid out and has a lot of different Ecuadorian items available. Everything from beautifully painted boxes to hummingbird statues and coffee mugs. My mom was visiting me and bought a few items from the store to take back to the states as her souvenirs. The owner if very nice, speaks English and took his time carefully wrapping up the delicate items so my mom could travel with them. Good prices as well. If you are looking for something beautiful to take home to remind you of Ecuador, this is your place. He ships too!

Eduardo Vega in Quito
Feb. 2016 • Friends
If you are in Quito and would like to check-out some Eduardo Vega ceramic art you need to visit Kalahari homemade decor. Alvaro, the owner of the store, is very knowledgable about E. Vega art and speaks excellent English. He was very helpful, he will pack and ship your purchases to the U.S. He takes credit cards, but cash works better. The store is located in north central Quito, the address is AV. Coruna N30-123 y Whymper.

Best store in Quito!
Aug. 2015 • Family
We spent 6 fabulous weeks in Ecuador this summer and we were looking for the perfect memento of the trip. We had given up hope until we found this little gem of a store. I wanted to take everything home! Eduardo Vega is a ridiculously talented pottery artist so the store was full of beautiful and unique pieces which embody the spirit of Ecuador. It doesn't hurt that the store is run by a charming young man, Alvaro, who speaks fluent English and bent over backwards to help us out. He packaged the pottery perfectly so our two gorgeous wall plates and assorted other treasures made it home safely. He even let us store our large suitcases at his store for a couple of hours so we could do some last minute errands before heading to the airport. Don't miss visiting this store!
