About Andean Beginnings
Andean Beginnings is the creation of four friends - two Ecuadorian natives and two from the United States. As fate would have it, our paths crossed when we all lived in Ecuador for several years approximately 10 years ago. We decided to create a brand that shows Ecuador's authentic beauty and the skill of its wonderful artisans while also giving back to the local community and supporting social causes that are important to us and to Ecuador.
Our Ecuadorian friends and counterparts visit the Andean Mountain communities in search of new and unique products, and we work together to make them available to our customer friends here in the United States. We take pride in paying fair prices, working with local residents and businesses, and directly supporting Ecuador's economy.
We hope you’ll enjoy the Andes craftsmanship as much as we do.
