Fodor's Review

Folklore Olga Fisch is one of Quito's more expensive, and curious, shopping experiences. The shop is in the colonial home of the late Olga Fisch (1901–90), who worked with craftspeople to turn folk art into modern works of art. The store specializes in handwoven rugs, tapestries, clothing, and pottery inspired by indigenous motifs. While you're here, visit the splendid museum upstairs and have lunch or afternoon tea in the small, informal restaurant in the garden or dinner in the intimate indoor restaurant.
