NANEDI VALLES ABOUT US
Amanda Zielinski is the founder and head designer at Nanedi Valles. Prior to launching her accessories line, Amanda held positions at IDEO, The Gap, and Williams-Sonoma where she immersed herself wholly in her work across sourcing, design, and product development.
While building her career and traveling overseas for over two decades, Amanda assembled a personal collection of unique jewelry and handbags from Hong Kong, to the street markets of New Delhi and Bangkok. Nanedi Valles was born out of these special experiences and propelled forward with the sole mission of bringing affordable luxury back to America.
Amanda just completed her MBA from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco with a focus on sustainability, design strategy, and systems innovation. In addition to her design work, Amanda actively supports a variety of business and nonprofit organizations that focus on empowering women, female-led companies, and ethical manufacturing practices.
