Ames explores the rich culture of Columbian heritige through the medium of furniture and household accessories, blending tradition techniques with new age design and style. A collabrative work between designers and native Columbian artisans gives Ames the ability to create exeptional quailty while minimizing enviormentaly wasteful practices.

“Colombia’s character is defined by its difference in altitude. There are no seasons, but the country has snowy mountains, rainforest, coastal areas and deserts”, explains Ana María Calderón Kayser, Ames founder. This diversity influences what materials and techniques are chosen for a product. “Whether we use fique fibres, iraca palm leaves or werregue grass for a product depends on what raw materials are available. Sometimes we have to wait years before we a material becomes available”, says Ana María Calderón Kayser.
