The Andean Collection Giveaway {CLOSED}

image The Andean Collection is a wonderful company, doing wonderful things, and producing wonderful products. The New York City based business helps create a greener planet and sheds light on the path out of poverty for their artisans by using fair trade principles. This means “producers and everyone along the supply chain has good working conditions, a decent wage, and a realistic path out of poverty. Given the inherent low education level of poor producers, fair trade for {The Andean Collection} also means going beyond and helping artisans lead a better life.” Each producer is also an owner in the company!

It is comforting to know that when you support this company you are supporting such an amazing cause. Being eco-friendly is an important aspect to this company. “Its jewelry is handcrafted from natural, biodegradable materials, and the company contributes positively to the communities it operates in, both through social programs and job creation.” They use the following materials:

acai tagua pambil jabon Huayruro coconut

From these resources they are able to design outstanding must-have jewelry.

hururbracThe Andean Collection’s jewelry is simply gorgeous! I received the huaruro bracelet and WOW! BEAUTIFUL! It was handmade in Ilum├ín, Ecuador by Nancy Moran. Nancy is a wife with three children. Thank you Nancy and The Andean Collection for creating this eco-friendly and fashion forward piece. I love it!

Shop online at their store or at one of the 50+ high-end boutiques nationwide. Don’t worry though…just because the jewelry is AMAZING doesn’t mean it is going to break the bank. Their products range from $14-$59….wallet- and eco-friendly. I’m thinking Santa should shop here for me for Christmas! I know you are thinking the same thing for you!
