Now working on a global scale, Faire Collection’s transcontinental collaborations started in Ecuador. The Brooklyn-based fair-trade accessories brand united with one of the workshops where it all began—run by a couple named Nancy and Carlos—to create the Catalina Necklace. Instead of gemstones, it features hand-carved discs of Ecuadorian tagua nut, which is commonly referred to as vegetable ivory.

  • Length: 18"-20"
  • Loop closure

When they began working with Faire Collection in 2008 (when it was called the Andean Collection), Nancy and Carlos were struggling to make ends meet. In exchange for their passion and talent, the company has provided them with an artisan qualification course in managing a business, special tax benefits, and scholarships for the couple’s two children.

Researching her Master’s thesis on poverty reduction in South America, Amanda Judge concluded that jewelry making was crucial to economic stability. In 2008, her findings inspired the business model for the Andean Collection. Now called the Faire Collection, the fair-trade brand works with artisans in Africa, Asia, and South America on original jewelry designs.
