OUR NAME HOLDS

GREAT SIGNIFICANCE*

*PURE QUALITY, PURE GOOD - AMAZING.

It takes two women, three working days, 24'400 glass beads and a whole lot of know-how, cultivated talent and patience to make just one of our beaded pouches. We want to honor the time, diligence and love put into each and every woven thread.

“We call Pura Utz an
empowerment project.”

Not only because we acknowledge the value of the women we collaborate with
- but because we are connecting worlds and seek to have a positive impact on everybody who is connected to our products.

That is what pure quality means to us
– Pura Utz!

We hope, you’ll join the journey of turning our dream into reality - it will take years but we are in for the long run <3 We hope, you’ll join the journey of turning our dream into reality -
OUR DREAM

THE PURA UTZ

HAPPY PLACE

Our directors Anna and Bernabela consider each other as soulmates and share the same dream for Pura Utz.


It's a dream of enabling a full-time income to a team of more than fifty women in Guatemala to help them grow their self-worth through providing for themselves and investing in their futures, all the while continuing to make unique handmade products of high quality for you. It has to make sense the whole way through.

It is a dream of purposeful growth that will enable the making of a wonderful place for Pura Utz in Santiago Atítlan. We want to create the most beautiful and wholesome production place that allows for more funnels of work and growth for our team.


A place to enjoy the smell of the fresh morning coffee, while viewing the volcano lake and feeling safe.

We hope, you’ll join the journey of turning our dream into reality - it will take years but we are in for the long run <3
