The Alma Company

Lately, we have been getting a lot of questions about what the name “Alma” means to us.

All of our products with Alma labels are items we design and make! Items made by an Alma!

And now that these items are beginning to pop up in shops around the country we thought it would be a great time to share a little history.

So who is Alma?

The family name started with my mother’s Grandma Alma. That name was then passed down to my mom, Carlene Alma.

She named me Betsy Alma, and I now have a 5 year old daughter named Charlie Alma.

Growing up, I never appreciated my name the way I do now. Looking back, I absolutely love being named after my mom. Her dad, my grandfather, is one of my favorite people, one whom I was lucky enough to have in my life, one of my role models and heroes.



I spent a lot of my childhood with him, hearing him call me Little Alma and my mom Big Alma. As soon as I found out I was pregnant with my first baby girl, I knew I wanted my own little Alma.

Because my grandfather is the main reason we are in the business we are, we knew we wanted to carry on his legacy – naming our brand Alma was a perfect way to do that.




Another reason it is so perfect? Alma means “soul.” We truly put our heart and soul into our business and the products we hand make.
