"I think the key to our success is staying true to the vision of what I wanted to Nena & Co. to be. 1) I want the product to be a true reflection of Guatemalan culture 2) I want the bag to be so beautiful that it grabs your attention without knowing the company of product background 3) I want always to be a fair and honest manufacturer to those that work for me and with me in Guatemala and here in the USA. If you stay true to who you are, have a good story, tell your story with transparency and tell it well, then you may have something that people are interested in."

Peek inside the very chic diaper bag of Nena & Co.’s founder.
When it comes to diaper bags, Ali Hynek is the inadvertent queen. Sure, her handprinted textile company, Nena & Co. doesn’t actually make a diaper bag. But pretty much every chic mama we know uses one of Nena & Co.’s gorgeous Guatemalan bags to carry around her baby’s things, so that pretty much qualifies her as an expert. And now that she’s got three newborn triplets, Penelope, Alejandra and Ethan, she’s one of them.
GOOD MORNING AMERICA
Meet “Sweet PEA,” also known as Penelope, Ethan and Alejandra, the adorable 7-month-old triplets taking social media by storm with their epic DIY Halloween costumes.
After three years of infertility treatments and three rounds of IVF, new mom Ali Hynek of Highland, Utah, was so excited to finally celebrate Halloween with her new babies that one costume just wasn’t going to cut it.
your zen mama
I am first generation American and was raised by a Guatemalan mama. Her mother lived with us my whole life as well. I think many mixed race kids might feel conflicted on their identity but I felt very confident of who I was as a child and into my adult years. I loved my American and Guatemalan heritage but especially felt drawn to be closer to my Central American roots. Long story short, creating Nena & Co. has allowed me to do just that.
