A play on the Spanish phrase a mano, or ‘by hand’, Ammano designs and manufactures high quality leather bags, each intricately crafted by the hands of our founder, Alba Matriela Matamoros.

Our beginnings date to 2019 when Alba Matriela, an architect by trade, grew fascinated with designing bags. Using the tools and techniques from her career, she incorporates 3D rendering in order to craft designs with accuracy and minimise waste. 

We take inspiration from the timelessness of iconic French brands, as well as the materials and techniques used that allow them to last a lifetime. As such, our products are proudly local and use only the highest-quality leather from Santa Barabara, Honduras. Through this, we aim to champion fair trade and slow fashion.

ITC project

Central America - Women and E-Commerce

The project, which is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the International Trade Centre (ITC) in collaboration with the Secretariat for Central American Economic Integration (SIECA) and national implementing partners, supports 200 women-led businesses from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama to export their handicrafts through e-commerce channels. Alongside work to improve product quality and design, the women-led businesses are trained and prepared to list on international online marketplaces such as Etsy and eBay, develop and optimize their own websites, use different digital marketing channels to generate traffic and sales, receive online payments, prepare orders for shipment and provide quality customer service.
