Hi! I'm Adan, and I am the designer and creator of Amano. I started Amano as a place to bring together my interests in design, sustainability, and traditional craftsmanship. I wanted a company that stood against fast consumerism, and advocated for quality hand-made goods over cheap, mass-produced (and short-lived) alternatives. After several attempted iterations of the idea, I settled on Amano as a literal and figurative representation of hand-crafted quality, since "a mano" means by hand in both Spanish and Italian.
With that ethos, I focus on creating enduring and beautiful everyday items, made using ethically sourced, natural materials. Amano Goods are designed to be minimalist, genderless, and timeless.
My commitment to quality means:
• Only ethically sourced, vegetable-tanned leather
• Timeless design & traditional construction techniques
• A Lifetime Workmanship Guarantee
