The Team

Meet our mini in-house team
Founder & CEO


Originally from England, Becky came to Guatemala at the end of 2014 to travel, learn Spanish and teach English.

About two years later, through a chance encounter with a talented artisan, Becky’s creativity and love for design converged with her background in nonprofit management, and Amara was born.

Amara, her Guatemalan husband and her wonderful community of friends and creatives have kept her in the beautiful country of Guatemala ever since. 

Production Coordinator


At just 18, Chio began working for Amara on quality control and packaging on an ad-hoc basis and now oversees the production and shipping of all our products.

Her father was a talented shoemaker from Pastores so she understands the intricacies of the work like no one else. She is incredibly organized, passionate and driven and we are so lucky to have her.

Chio plans to study psychology part-time alongside her Amara work and dreams of opening her own psychology clinic one day.
