The wares have appeared on the pages of fashion magazines like <i>Vogue</i> and <i>Harper’s Bazaar</i>, and sales help benefit developing communities in countries such as Bolivia and India.

SurEvolution works with artisans around the world to create nature-inspired home decor with serious zen appeal, like these brass lotus-flower candle holders and branch-like candle stands. Their cozy travel blankets made from baby-alpaca wool are so soft that you may find yourself using them even when you're not on the road.
Launched in 2003, Sur Evolution was founded by Colombian entrepreneur Marcella Echavarría and created in partnership with the fashion designer Donna Karan. Sur Evolution has distinguished itself by traveling the world in search of the best materials and techniques to create handmade jewelry made by indigenous, rural and urban artisans whose livelihood depends on the continuation of these crafts. The company began by working closely with Colombian indigenous tribes such as the Arhuaco, Sikuani and Wayuu tribe, to produce handmade goods for boutiques like ABC Home and Carpet and Takashimaya as well as larger department stores such as Barney’s New York, Neiman Marcus and The Museum of Modern Art. Sur Evolution’s focus is on innovative, high quality design and luxury while at the same time contributing to the preservation of heritage and developing a sustainable business model for the artisanal world. With features in <i>The New York Times magazine</i>, <i>Vogue</i>, <i>Elle</i>, and <i> Harper’s Bazaar</i>, these sought after styles are as gorgeous as they are socially conscious and an obvious addition to Gilt Groupe as we celebrate Earth Day.
