THE MAKERS

NEST Colombia, formerly Sapia, was originally conceived in 1995 by Ana Piedrahita, an entrepreneur in Colombia‘s capital city of Bogota. Piedrahita had seen a box from Uruguay that was produced from dried orange peel and recognized the potential for producing a wide array of unique and intriguing items from this material. She decided to pursue a business specializing in the design and production of the products. The organization was formally registered in 2000. NEST Colombia has incorporated fair trade principles in its operation, as it seeks to develop the artisan-based handicraft sector in Colombia.
