About ARImarketplace

On Etsy since 2015

We must find a new balance between how much we ask & how much we give. With the right balance every action is infused with collective love & power.

In the Quecha language the word for collective, abundance-producing relationships is minka. In appreciation for the gift of Andean and Amazonian wisdom of abundant life and well-being, we have created numerous support programs for the Andean village of Maras, and others nearby, to help nourish and carry forward the priceless knowledge of these cultures. We are working to extend and empower some of these programs through a Peruvian National Accreditation process, making them more valuable to the program participants and their communities. ARI is also active in Amazonian regions, where we are working to preserve the land and the indigenous people’s knowledge of the jungle’s life-supporting pharmacopeia.

Every purchase from our shop is directly supporting our mission and programs in our Andean villages!
