ABOUT

Bata Carmen Alicia Agreda Woman weaver, part of Aynan Designs, who supports her family through the art of weaving

 

Generations of women, who keep the knowledge of ancient indigenous arts, to create peace and health in the world.

 

 

We are a company led by women of indigenous descent who seek through traditional crafts, support for indigenous communities and women artisans.

Aynan Designs was inspired by our mutual love and respect for indigenous American traditions of art and design. We strive to bring you unique and classic pieces that highlight the talent of native artisans and that enrich your life with their inspiring beauty.  

all our pieces are made and purchased through the fair trade philosophy, (now we work to receive certification) where we respect and carry out the value chain in an ethical manner.

Aynan Designs is a fabric of more than 25 women producers and heads of households, who are part of the organization and are beneficiaries of the fair purchase of their products, these women are the life of our organization and bring with them the experience, vision and indigenous culture.

As apprentices of traditional Amazonian medicine and ministers at Circle of Sacred Nature, we share a deep bond with each other and also share a close relationship with the family and community that makes our signature Putumayo jewelry and textile collection. Through our small woman-owned company, we seek to create a new marketing opportunity for them and to expand and include works by other artisans from other regions we also love and treasure. 

We started selling jewelry and textiles many years ago at our healing gatherings and events. Many of the designs we carried represented stories from indigenous cosmology and the yagé medicine lineages of the Upper Amazonian region. This opened our eyes even more to the amazing aesthetic value of native beadwork and textiles. Everyone else seemed to love our pieces too! 

We're grateful to everyone who has supported our marketplace efforts over the years. You have helped us learn to travel deeper into our inquiry of the stories and legacy from which these art and textile traditions emerge. We hope we can continue to appreciate, value, and make a positive exchange with the people who make these treasures and that our new online marketplace will help our circle grow and grow.

We present you a collection that includes timeless as well as original designs created by us to appeal to your adventurous spirit.
