Since 1987, Guatemalart has been one of the leading sources of Guatemalan Rasta Dreadlocks, Headwear, Hacky Sacks, Bags, Backpacks, Accessories, and Rasta products. Twice already, our company was proclaimed Guatemala’s Best Handicraft Exporter by the trade association. Guatemalart is increasingly focused in succeeding hand in hand with the artisans we work with. It is our goal to grow together.
We believe in investing in Guatemala. Our company is committed to the principles of integrity, responsibility, education and a healthy life. We also support the families with a zero-interest finance scheme, which they use to be able to manufacture the merchandise. This program empowers artisans with credit, enabling them to increase their productivity, without encumbering them with upfront cash requirements to buy raw material.
We support the communities where we operate by setting up sustainable, livelihood-enhancing projects in favor of the artisans who manufacture our products, with donations such as:
-Installations of latrines
-School supplies, refurbished computers and school meals for young children.
The company has branched out into additional areas that include specialty gift products; “Coffee in a bag” is perfect for the holidays coming up. Two gifts in one! Several bags were featured and well received at the Coffee Fest in Anaheim.
