Passion, Culture & Color
Meet the Founder
"A thing of beauty is a joy forever"
Authentico Goods was created in 2019 from my love of textiles and design. Ever Since I can remember, I've been fascinated with fabrics and accessories and the way they can make you feel- the smell of buttery-soft leather, the sight of vibrant colors and the intricate designs.
Both of my parents were born and raised in El Salvador and I believe that this culture has shown me how to find beauty in the little things. My grandmother, Maria Elena ('Mamama'), was the epitome of beauty & grace. Classic fashion pieces were her staple and I feel so honored to have inherited a few over the years. My grandmother's sister, 'Tia Ali' would surprise me with little purses whenever we would visit El Salvador. I guess you can say that it's memories like this that would make a lasting impression on me.
After graduating with a degree in Textiles, Apparel and Merchandising and years of wondering how I could share this passion, I finally decided to take the leap and open up my own business. Step by step I've learned to trust my intuition and curate a wonderful assortment of goods for you.
Authentico Goods is here to bring you a well-edited collection of ethically-sourced handbags, jewelry and accessories for your everyday living. We believe that hidden gems are meant to be discovered and shared for their beauty and originality.
I wanted to create Authentico Goods to highlight a maker's craft and share it with all of you. Supporting women-owned business as well as ethically-sourced products is a large part of our mission.
Unlike mass-produced products, our items have a unique story behind them. I genuinely care about each product that I choose- from the expertly crafted handbags to the handmade accessories- and believing purchasing something with meaning and longevity behind it, makes all the difference in the world. The time and artistry it takes to create just one bag is something extra special that most take for granted.
Through brilliant colors and handcrafted designs, our accessories are meant to bring joy and elevate any outfit. My hope is that you find something for yourself, a friend or a loved one that will evoke those same feelings.
