Carolina Pastrana Lara

Carolina was born in Bogotá – Colombia. 

She went to architecture school at the University of Los Andes and graduated in 2001. Right after graduation she moved to the United States with her family and worked in the furniture and interior design business until 2009 when her son Nico was born. 

Driven by the desire of staying home with Nico, Carolina was determined to open a business that would keep her connected to her roots, this is how Amano Artisans was born. Angel Pastrana, her husband, has been key to Carolina's success.
