*Bernabela is Co-Founder and Head of Operations in Guatemala.
She coordinates the production, quality control, sampling, designing, sourcing and skills training. Her best skill is that she believes everything is possible.
"The part that I enjoy the most is coming up with ideas and suggestions about new designs that imply developing our different techniques to create our designs. I always think that we can solve a design idea even though we never made anything like it before. Just think about our Flower Dream Bag - we sampled for a year and half to create a new shape in all beads and handmade. We want to defy the ideas of what we can create with our craft.
My dream for Pura Utz is for us to have a stable company that can develop into having multiple sources of work for our team, with beautiful and favorable working conditions for all our team members."
