Andean Collection

We were so thrilled to stumble upon the Andean Collection at one of our recent trade shows. Not only do we love the bright colors and natural look of their designs, everything is made out of sustainable natural seeds! The Andean Collection takes cues from our diverse world. They use both bright colors and soft hues, and combine natural materials with rustic metals. They spend their time between New York City and artisan workshops in the Andean regions of South America. The look integrates these worlds and the results are inspired designs that fuse the urban with the rural; the natural with the modern. The collection is also so well-priced! This is the part we really love- the Andean's Collection's non-profit "arm" is the Andean Project (AP) where they focus on providing supplemental services to their local artisans and their families. The collective mission of the two organizations is to promote the economic, cultural and social rights to basic human needs, such as housing, food, decent employment, cultural identity, health services and education. Currently, the AP pays secondary school fees for the artisans and their children who live in poverty stricken coastal and mountainous regions of Ecuador. The AP is also providing the artisans with comprehensive training programs and they will develop subsequent program areas over the next year. They create to encourage change. The Andean Collection was founded to bring sustainable change to impoverished communities in South America. They offer artisans the opportunity to participate in the global market while inspiring their customers with access to the elusive world of the rural Andes. Amazing!
