At Amado, we create exceptional, small-batch collections and seek to integrate the traditional with the contemporary in an ethical and intentional way.

Our mission is to craft heirloom-quality goods while creating opportunities in local Guatemalan communities. Every step of the way, we strive to employ as many artisans as possible, from the creation of the products, to the sewing of the bags that arrive at your door.

We promise to provide fair wages to our artisans and direct a portion of every sale to support local entrepreneurs in building their businesses and futures. Your support of the slow fashion movement also allows us to fulfill our goal of reducing waste and ensures each piece is made with the utmost quality and integrity.
