The María Amazonas brand was founded by Isabella María and Denisse María on July 25th, 2018. Their goal was to create an original line of handbags made from natural fibers. The name comes from their names—Isabella Maria and Denisse Maria (hence the idea of the name: “María Amazonas”).
They traveled around Ecuador in search of suppliers, finally choosing those that convinced them the most. They visit them sometimes to do several tests and samples until they find the perfect handbag. Like every entrepreneurship, it has been a long and difficult task, but they’ve enjoyed every moment and adventure they’ve had together.
Now they hope that you can enjoy them as much as they do.
María Amazonas is a brand that seeks to be a window into the world and show the great talent that their people have.
Combining one of the most common names in Ecuador, “María”, with one of the most representative areas of the country, “Amazonas”, this brand seeks to be a window into the world and show the great talent that their people have.
María Amazonas is and represents all the faces of artisans. Without the talent they possess, this work would not be possible. Thanks to the passion, love, and commitment they put into their work, it have been able to make this dream come true.
