Purchasing Direct From Artisans
We acquire all of the products we sell directly from the artisans within the communities.
We either travel to the communities to make the purchases ourselves, or partner with reputable organizations that are traveling to the communities for purposes that better the lives and cultures of the Indigenous.
Supporting Amazon Advocacy
25% of all purchases made through us go back to support the Amazon advocacy work of the Pachamama Alliance.
Pachamama works with indigenous partners in Ecuador to stand for the rights of indigenous people and Nature, safeguarding the rainforest and working in the industrialized world to shift the culture of overconsumption that threatens their Amazonian home.
