al·ti·pla·no
: a high plateau or plain

 

All of Altiplano’s products are handcrafted in the highlands of Guatemala. Based on the beautiful shores of Lake Atitlan,
beneath towering volcanoes, Altiplano has been providing fair wage and employment for over 25 years.

 

The altiplano collection passes through many hands before reaching you.

 

Working with many of the same artisans since our inception, the quality and design of Altiplano products reflects years of experience. We provide employment opportunities to cooperative groups, small family businesses and to women in our own fairtrade workshop. In an effort to support traditional life, Altiplano offers women the opportunity to work at home, making them available to care for their children and household, while earning financial independence.

 

We thank you for supporting our talented artisans & their beautiful hand craft.
