Overview

At Casa de los Gigantes, we are a family 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.

Not the bargain basement of Antiguan souvenir shops, but then also not the most expensive for that which you will encounter herein. Here are very authentic quality Guatemalan products reasonably priced given their provenance, both source and antiquity. My fancy is for the lovely teak...More

A wonderful place to shop for almost any artisan items. textiles, wood carvings, home items and clothing. Staff are available but not pushy. prices can be steep but look around and you will find lots of things at reasonable prices.

Casa de los Gigantes is a well laid out store with better made goods from Guatemala. The pricing is very competitive and the quality better than most shops. I wish I had gone here first.

This store is definitely a cut (or a few) above the typical Antigua craft store. Nicely laid out with high-quality merchandise from various regions of the country. No hard sell here (kind of the opposite - no-one pays attention to you unless you ask them...More
