Ancient Amazons

is an online multi-brand store founded in 2019 by Amaia Lanchas, a Spanish woman whose passion and inspiration are rooted in European culture and lifestyle.


  • I founded Ancient Amazons around very simple ideas: supporting small European brands, fostering a passion for fashion, and creating a space to stop and appreciate the little things in life.

  • All the pieces that we select are designed to be versatile and timeless. We work with brands whose mission is to uphold the values of a job well done and most of these pieces are made by hand and with great attention to detail and a relentless pursuit of perfection.

  • These collections are chosen for women who understand that their enlightened self-interest is in investing in sustainable pieces. Clothes you can create memories with, not fast fashion. And lastly, clothes that make you feel comfortable, beautiful, and ready to meet the universe halfway.

In April 2022,

  • We launched the first collection of bags, designed by Amaia and handmade in small batches in San Diego. Bags with simple and timeless designs which can be easily paired with any look.

  • Amaia handpicks the fabrics in different cities in Europe, from local stores and through artisans making her collections available in limited supplies. The most important thing for us when sourcing fabrics is to find unique prints, textures, and color palettes as well as be conscious of the impact on our planet.
