Escanté is a wholesale lingerie and intimate apparel company established in 1986 with headquarters in beautiful San Antonio, Texas. Eduardo Kuri owns and operates factories located in Merida, Mexico. Merida is the capital of and largest city in the Yucatan Peninsula, and largely populated by Mayans, Spanish, French, British and Lebanese decedents.
Since the 1980’s, Eduardo Kuri has been manufacturing beautifully designed lingerie. His unique and creative approach to manufacturing has brought Escanté to the forefront and a leading brand in the Intimate Apparel business. By using the softest fabrics and laces with a pallet of vibrant colors Escanté’s designs stand out in the industry due to the vision of Eduardo and his creative team of designers.
