Guatemala has its roots planted in the heart of the Mayan Civilization which was one of the most advanced civilizations of it’s time with one of the earliest known written languages in the western world. The culture of Guatemala reflects Mayan and Spanish influences. Because of this, modern Guatemalan art is rich in color but subtle enough for every day use. Our Guatemalan products are extremely intricate in detail and made by hand for a truly artisan feel.
