AKA Cruz Andina - Unifying Indigenous People with Fashion

We are excited for our friends who have just recently launched their new & beautiful site and shop AKA Cruz Andina. A brand that is focused on bringing Indigenous people (of the Americas) together through fashion.

"The brand uses Indigenous textiles, artwork, and cultural knowledge to create contemporary pieces.Textiles used throughout our accessories have been repurposed from vintage traditional clothing of Indigenous people of the Americas, each item carrying a unique history."

What is also so great about them is that a percentage of profits goes toward empowering youth through the arts.
