LABRICA was conceived by Lorena Vasquez over a decade ago. With the help of her daughter and son the dream became a reality in 2012, and since then LABRICA has filled the void between gifted artisans and world-class contemporary design. The founders chose to locate LABRICA near Antigua, the crown jewel of Guatemalan leisure, culture and tourism. The town of Santa Lucia Milpas Altas is home to a long tradition of woodworking, and most of LABRICA's artisans call the area home. When it comes to artisanal manufacturing they say you can't have it both ways. Not at Labrica. Our woodmasters are all from 2nd, 3rd and even 4th generation families. This allows our boutique factory to have the quality and consistency you can expect from larger shops. Get to know more about our passion for design and excellence, and our contributions to sustainable development in Guatemala.

Founded in 1994, Algodones Mayas was created by two visionaries to share the magic of handwoven textiles. Our handwoven cotton pieces help preserve Guatemala’s rich culture, land, natural colors and motives. “That was the original vision of them who wanted to preserve the brown color of the cotton which the Mayan people used to weave their clothes. 27 years later, our company has kept the same principles. We innovate continuously, creating new products to meet the needs of international markets. The name Wayil means “Native” in indigenous language - referencing the native raw materials and the hands that weave each piece to create refreshing, contemporary designs for our customers.
