Our Team

Co-founders Annie & Mary Kate met on the bus to kindergarten, and the rest is history. Growing up, crafting was central to their friendship - joining crochet & embroidery clubs, enrolling in sewing classes, and loving everything about making something by hand. In 2017, they visited Guatemala for the first time and were inspired by all the unique products, empowered women, and rich tradition, and wanted to share this with the world. In pursuit of a team, they fortuitously connected with Ali whose passion for travel, art and storytelling jumpstarted the project into reality.
