- the maker
Soraya Cedeno was born in a small coastal village in Ecuador, renowned as a haven for gifted artisans specializing in a relatively unknown raw material: tagua. Soraya carried her love of her people and her culture as she traveled the world and looked for ways to give back to those who inspired her as a child. Influenced by high fashion in New York and Miami, Soraya works with her village artisans to design gorgeous jewelry that is not only organic, eco-friendly and sustainable, but provides unparalleled economic opportunity to the artisans who produce it. In support of this mission, Soraya developed a partnership with the Government of Ecuador to provide business management education and training to help our artisans become better business people and stronger managers.
