Tagua, bamboo, tocte, and acai are all sustainable materials that have gained popularity not only for their eco-friendly properties but also for their connection to the Andes region of South America. Tagua and tocte are both sourced from palm trees found in the tropical rainforests of the Andes, while bamboo is grown in many parts of the region. Acai berries are also found in the Amazon rainforest, which spans across several Andean countries. The use of these sustainable materials not only benefits the environment but also supports the Andean communities that rely on them for their livelihoods.

Andean tagua is a natural product derived from the nuts of certain palm trees that grow in the Andean region of South America. It is a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to ivory, used to make a wide range of products, including jewelry, buttons, and decorative objects. Andean tagua is prized for its natural beauty and unique patterns and textures. Its production and sale provide an opportunity for economic development and cultural preservation, while also promoting sustainable and ethical practices.


Andean tocte, also known as Sacha Inchi, is a highly nutritious plant native to the Amazon rainforest region of South America. Its small seeds are rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, protein, fiber, and antioxidants, making it a popular superfood. Andean tocte is being cultivated as a sustainable and eco-friendly crop, providing economic opportunities for farmers and contributing to the preservation of the Amazon rainforest.


Bamboo is a fast-growing, versatile, and sustainable plant that has been used for construction, furniture, textiles, and decorative items for thousands of years. It requires minimal maintenance, absorbs carbon dioxide, and is a renewable resource, making it an eco-friendly choice for both commercial and personal use.


Acai is a superfood fruit grown in the Amazon rainforest, known for its high antioxidant content, potential health benefits, and concerns around sustainability due to increased demand. It is commonly consumed in juice or smoothie form, and efforts are being made to ensure sustainable production practices.


Our Mission

We support economic development in the Andes region and create an impact in their communities. We design products that supports both the environment and indigenous artisans in South America.


Poverty and lack of opportunities persist in the Andean region, limiting access to basic services and stable employment for millions. Despite challenges, efforts are underway to address poverty through education, training, and building infrastructure. By supporting local artisans, you can help break the cycle of poverty and build a brighter future for the people of the Andean region.

Supporting Local Artisans: A Path for Alleviating Social Challenges

This region has a rich history of trade and commerce that dates back to the time of the Incas

In the Quechua language, these groups were known as "Mindaláles", which roughly translates to "traders who go to the markets". The Mindaláles were organized into groups and had specific routes and territories that they would travel to for trading.

These indigenous traders played a crucial role in the economy and cultural exchange of the region, as they not only exchanged goods but also shared their knowledge, traditions, and customs with other communities.

Today, the tradition of Andean trade and commerce lives on through the Andean artcrafts industry. Many indigenous communities continue to create and sell their handmade products, using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations.

By supporting the Andean artcrafts industry, we are not only celebrating the rich cultural heritage of the region but also helping to preserve and promote the traditional practices of these communities. It is a way to honor their history and contribute to their sustainable economic development.
