It is through wanderings on the other side of the world, meeting inspiring people and discovering fascinating cultures that we become aware of the potential of our action to change the world.
The genesis of the ethical brand NODOVA is part of this dynamic, with an idea that begins to germinate in the heart of the Andean Alps, during a humanitarian trip at the end of 2009. Elodie Guillerm, founder, will meet Kishwa children and women there living in precariousness. She then wanted to make a contribution, help Andean women find a stable source of income and finance the education of the children from their village. She then invested her student loan to train them in the creation of costume jewellery in tagua, a source of autonomy, financial independence and emancipation.
From an idea born out of her artistic sensibility, a piece is imagined, drawn, thought out in her daily life and then manufactured by Andean women in their independent cooperative.
