How We Work

Ambos Designs is based in Boulder, CO, where many of our prototypes and custom leather goods are made.  The other part of our team works in Guatemala to create exclusive fair trade products.

  • 1. We work with our hands & promote creative freedom.

    Whether we are leather-crafting in Boulder or developing designs for sterling silver earrings in Guatemala, everything we do is handmade. We collaborate with one another regularly and encourage each other to create from a place of inspiration.

  • 2. We ensure respect, empowerment & fair trade.

    What better way is there to ensure fair trade values than addressing the needs of the creators themselves? We focus on individuals. We have built our team with relationships based on mutual understanding and trust. We work to respect the culture and to communicate effectively to build a supportive and sustainable work environment for everyone involved.

  • 3. We operate with integrity.

    Our work is direct, efficient and honest. We keep your prices as low as possible, while maintaining the integrity of our work. When you buy a product, you are not funding large marketing initiatives or perpetuating excessive spending, but you are providing valuable work opportunity for individual artisans.
