In Quechua, an indigenous language spoken in many parts of South America, “ayni” means reciprocity. It means a good trade; both parties benefit. This is what The Ayni Way is about.
Based in Ecuador, we know first hand how precious the forest is and the importance of buying materials directly from local communities. We only work with people who understand our mindset and agree to harvest ethically and sustainably. We pay more than fair rates in return for their dedication towards doing things in the right way.
Everything we create is made with love and attention to detail, from the coconut and Palo Santo oiled Ayahuasca pendant to the Manilla Hemp fiber inset in the handmade gift box.
Thank you for your contribution!
