The young moms became inspired by the affection for his or her children and their reminiscence of the eye-catching Mayan textiles. This is where the idea for Chi Chi Amor was born. In 2006, Shari and Danielle took a few trips to Panajachel, Guatemala where they met with a few fabric manufacturers. Together they developed a line of unique toddlers’s apparel that integrated Mayan textiles with modern western trend.
Their products are handmade by small family groups who work in collaboration with Chi Chi Amor to design and bring their garments. Danielle and Shari take great care to guarantee that all the Guatemalan collaborators might be paid for his or her work in response to the costs they set for themselves and are identified for his or her artistry.
