About Ali Talbert
As the founder/designer at ali talbert, Ali works directly with master artisans in Ecuador to produce luxury goods ranging from handcrafted haircalf and cowhide leather totes, handbags, dopp kits, and more, to beautifully woven wraps, ponchos, throws, and pillow covers. The company also offers an elegant assortment of handcrafted fashion jewelry made with all-natural materials.
Ali's journey in Ecuador began six years ago when she made a trip there and immediately fell in love with the exquisite natural landscape, rich culture, and the artisans who produce stunning works of art. She traveled to Ecuador regularly, establishing close relationships with many local artisans and business owners. They continually worked together to tweak and refine the products to achieve a more modern aesthetic.
Ali's designs are inspired by the natural materials available in Ecuador, and the finished products reflect a seamless blend of modern luxury and old-world craftsmanship.
Ali works directly with the artisans, and fair treatment and respect are cornerstones of her business. Ali enjoys close relationships with many of the artisans and is committed to supporting them financially while helping them preserve art forms that have been passed down from generation to generation.
