2021: The Impact Report

A year to remember! We've had a fabulous 2021 with a year full of collaboration and expansion across the globe. We have loved communicating with our customers throughout the world and continuing to celebrate our amazing artisans and all of their much-loved creations.

 As we settle in to a new year, we want you, our wonderful customers, to be reminded of the unforgettable impact that each and every one of your purchases is having on communities across Colombia.

 Whether it is allowing us to collaborate with new artisans and bring sustainable income to rural communities across the country, helping us to ensure the preservation of ancient crafting techniques and promoting ethical practices, or shining a light on female entrepreneurship, your commitment to The Colombia Collective has helped to change the lives of many.

 This year we have continued to grow in size, welcoming new team members and even our first Colombian warehouse in Bogota. Alongside this, we have seen online customers join us from all corners of the world alongside some very exciting stockists. As our company has grown, we've been able to expand our catalogue with some beautiful, new designs and consequently engage in new artisan partnerships.
We couldn't be more excited for 2022 and hope to continue to support our lovely craft communities throughout Colombia with lots of new projects heading our way. As we continue on this journey however, we will be committed to ensuring that our mission stays the same: ethical partnerships and hand crafted techniques remain at the core of our company.
As ever, we are always extremely grateful to every single customer, subscriber and supporter and want to say an enormous thank you for the contribution that your support makes. We enter this new year with hope, gratitude and excitement, but also a sense of reflection on all that has been achieved over the past 12 months. And with this we wanted to share a few facts and figures on the impact that The Colombia Collective community has had during 2021...
