Our mission at Casa de los Gigantes is to create handmade crafts using earth-friendly materials for today’s world. We believe that our crafts bring warmth and humanity to an increasingly technological and impersonal world, while simultaneously providing our artisans with a dignified way of making a living.
Our vision is a world in which artisans’ skills are valued and their work is appreciated for its aesthetic, cultural and practical values, and in which artisans can live with dignity and be well remunerated.
At Casa de los Gigantes, we are a team with about one hundred members, all of us passionate about Guatemala’s rich traditions and multicultural heritage, as well as the colorful and hardworking people that make this part of the planet so special. We are business people, artisans, and designers with a common goal of creating stunning handicrafts to share with our customers.
We come from all different parts of Guatemala, and some of us even from outside the country. Some of us are fathers and mothers, while others are young men and women only starting on the road of life. We all share a commitment to spreading our passion for handicrafts through the preservation of old traditions and the innovation of new designs.
Guatemala is our house, our Casa, and our customers, artisans, designers, and employees are the giants, the Gigantes, that make this dream possible.
Casa de los Gigantes is committed to developing crafts through innovation and building long-term, sustainable relationships with our artisans, designers and customers. We do this through our retail store, our export division, and our carpentry shop.
