We are proud to introduce our new Cayambe line! We wanted to embrace the vibrant, fun colors of the Caribbean (where our photoshoot for the lookbook took place) and juxtapose them with the new shapes and types of natural toned seeds to create these fresh looks. I personally loved working with the incredibly rich looking chonta seeds because of their dark, textured shell; you can see these incorporated into the Playita Necklace, which also has bright tagua and acaí pieces.
Using the natural form of the seeds. Using the chontas (texture of the shell of the seed is incredibly rich,. Making the tagua into new on trend geometric forms.
he inspiration for this latest collection comes from Ecuador’s stunning coastal region,” says Andean Collection founder Amanda Judge. “We wanted our new pieces to capture the natural beauty and vibrancy of these communities in a fashionable way. The intricate pieces in the Cayambe Line also showcase the high skill level our artisans have developed over the years.”
The Cayambe line takes raw rainforest materials and elevates them into innovative pieces, by merging traditional artisan craftsmanship with current fashion trends and bright new color ways. This innovation is evident in Andean Collection’s new Dual Tagua Link Necklace, a sustainable spin on the chain-link trend. As well as the Sofia earrings, necklace, and bracelet which pair soft silver accents with electric hues, including lime and aqua.
