Andean Collection, a fair trade group
Andean Collection takes cues from our diverse world. We use both bright colors and soft hues, and combine natural materials with rustic metals. We spend our time between New York City and artisan workshops in the Andean regions of South America.
Our look integrates these worlds and the results are inspired designs that fuse the urban with the rural; the natural with the modern.
We create to encourage change. Andean Collection was founded to bring sustainable change to impoverished communities in South America. We offer artisans the opportunity to participate in the global market while inspiring our customers with access to the elusive world of the rural Andes.
We have a non-profit arm, Andean Project, to ensure that this change is productive and healthy and to address other poverty related social issues, all funded through our sales and private donations.
Andean Collection is a member of the Fair Trade Federation.
