OUR HANDCRAFTED PRODUCTS ARE UNLIKE ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN FIND!
Our pieces are sourced from the Andes and crafted by artisans who make every product one-of-a-kind.
Our products are made from organic and eco-friendly materials. Let us bring a part of the Andes to you!
These are traditional art forms of the indigenous mountain communities. Each one represents the culture of the Andes.
WHERE DO WE HANDCRAFT OUR PRODUCTS?
Our artisans come primarily from the mountainous zone of Otavalo in Ecuador. This area has been characterized by its excellent hand-made crafts and a rich indigenous culture, which is reflected in its art and traditions.
OUR HANDMADE PRODUCTS ARE MADE FROM ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS
Tagua nuts are traditionally used to make jewelry and other crafts. Hard as an elephant’s tusk but biodegradable when discarded. Not even one leaf of the tree is harmed in harvesting tagua and in one year, the Tagua tree produces a quantity of vegetable ivory equivalent to that of one female elephanT.
Bamboo is a great alternative to wood. It grows fast and can be cut down without damaging its root system, meaning it will re-grow after it is harvested. Bamboo also captures large amounts of carbon in the environment.
Tocte nut, or Andean walnut, is a relative of the commercial walnut eaten around the world. Tocte nut trees are now endangered because their wood is prized for carving and making furniture. Finding uses for the actual nut provides the incentive to re-plant tocte nut trees and protect them once they bear fruit.
