Plant the seed of LOVE! 500 years ago, the Inca collected Achira seeds for use in jewelry, rosaries, and musical instruments. We paired these ancient seeds with Tagua nuts, indigenous symbols of harmony and tranquility.
We're thrilled to incorporate these historic seeds into our Tagua Heart Necklace that promotes LOVE. Every purchase creates a sustainable livelihood for Kichwa female artisans in Ecuador.
We partner with Faire Collection to provide fair wages and medical care to the artisans. They are affiliated with the Ecuadorian Social Security Institute.
"Before working in this workshop with Love Is Project, I didn’t work and was dependent on my ex husband. Now that I work here, there have been a lot of changes. I feel more independent and empowered. I know that now I can move forward and give my kids what they need without depending on a man. I think it is very beneficial for women to work with Love Is Project so they can be independent. We hope that our work is valued in other countries because we do it with love, dedication, and our own hands." - Marciela
"Love is wonderful, especially my love for my daughters. Since I started working here, I can provide my children with an education and give them food." - Lourdes

"What the world need more of now...LOVE!" - Chrissie
"Amen." - Mark Cuban
We went on a wild journey and appeared on Shark Tank Because nothing says love like dragging your 70 years old mom out of retirement to help with operations and finances, I brought her on the show too! ;-)
I believe LOVE is passion for what you do. Love Is Project is truly a labor of LOVE. Between my mother, Gladys, and myself, we singlehandedly run this organization full-time. We are the definition of a scrappy, big-hearted start-up always looking to meet the moment and jump in to help where we can. Powered by LOVE and a tribe of collaborators, mentors, friends, and a worldwide support system, Love Is Project exists. ♥
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support!
