Andina is a startup born as an engine of change propelled by the love of our ancestors and the women of the Puna Laguna Blanca -Catamarca Province- is the origin of a remote community of women with an ancestral tradition: the weaving of vicuña wool garments These ponchos, ruanas, and shawls are woven with heart and soul and are the economic support for more than 100 families. Andina was born with the mission to connect us with the heart and origin of these women, and become a bridge between regional economies and the world.

The vicuña wool garments are soft, of the finest quality, 100% handmade, sustainable and in harmony with nature; which ensures animal conservation There are more than 200 women weavers in the community who live at 4,000 AMSL without recognition, financing or access to technology, hence the difficulties in marketing the fabrics that are considered luxury items and highly prized in major international fashion markets. International brands come to the Northern region of Argentina in search of raw wool, thus threatening the normal development of regional economies and jeopardizing ancestral art.

Through a manual process of pre-Columbian techniques and 6 to 12 months of handcrafted work, unique garments without any type of textile dyes are born Andina, being a social enterprise, seeks to empower these women, make their work visible, ensure a constant production and generate a positive impact on their community. In addition to contributing to the fulfillment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
