Becky O. was born on the eastern slopes of the Andes to itinerant missionary musicians.
Her association with fabric began at an early age, when as a teenager she began spinning
the fur of llamas into bandanas worn by the more fashionable guerillas of the Sendero
Luminoso group, and continued after she set up an atelier devoted to high-altitude couture.
After an unfortunate incident with a renegade Peace Corps volunteer she moved to the U.S.,
where she married the east coast surfboard designer Pablo "Longboard" Lefkowicz. Becky O.
studied sculpture and textile arts at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and
after taking a sabbatical to surf five of the seven seas, she settled in New Hampshire and
established Becky Oh!, New England's foremost purveyor of portable style.*
