Our designs
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.

Our motivation 
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by "Blue" color is totally different than pictured I ordered the "blue" color which the picture shows as featuring only one color of beads, a very pretty light bluish-green.  However, when I received the necklace today, the beads are very dark in color and there are two different  colors.  The smaller beads (the top strand and the strand on the left side of the neck) are not remotely close to blue.  They are instead an ugly greenish-greyish-brown.  The larger beads are closer to "blue" but are much darker than the color in the picture.  I love the quality, design, and style of this necklace so much, but I just don't have anything that goes with these colors.  I'm also annoyed that the picture Gaiam chose to use to illustrate this product was misleading.  It's clear they didn't even bother to take a real photo of the product; they simply photoshopped the photo of the model wearing the coral color version and changed the color of the beads.  That itself wouldn't be a problem if they had actually gotten the color (nope, COLORS!) right.  Sadly, they did not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice but, Really nice necklace, good weight but I do not like the unusual type closure. It does not seem like it will stay on securely. Just trying it on and hooking the loop on the first bead, the necklace fell off; the second bead seemed like it might be a little more secure. July 30, 2014
