Casa de los Gigantes

Casa de los Gigantes has been crafting beautiful handmade home decor items for over 50 years. We produce innovative, proudly Guatemalan products for the global market — with an extensive collection that includes home decor items, fashion accessories, jewellery, and seasonal items. Our mission is to create stunning handmade crafts using earth-friendly materials. 

Casa de los Gigantes has long-term relationships with over 80 different artisanal groups in Guatemala, including masters of wood carving, textiles, weaving, pottery, beading, pine needle weaving, natural dyes, and many other areas of crafts and folk art. 

We envision a world in which artisans are valued and their work appreciated for its aesthetic, cultural, and practical values. We help link the culture and traditions of Guatemala with the modern world, so that these traditions may thrive and the people who craft them may earn a fair wage for their art — bringing warmth and humanity to an increasingly technological and disconnected world.

ITC project

Central America - Women and E-Commerce

The project, which is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the International Trade Centre (ITC) in collaboration with the Secretariat for Central American Economic Integration (SIECA) and national implementing partners, supports 200 women-led businesses from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama to export their handicrafts through e-commerce channels. Alongside work to improve product quality and design, the women-led businesses are trained and prepared to list on international online marketplaces such as Etsy and eBay, develop and optimize their own websites, use different digital marketing channels to generate traffic and sales, receive online payments, prepare orders for shipment and provide quality customer service.
