House of Antigua Artisans

"We are more than a team; we are a family, because with this many of us have been able to give our children schooling so that they can have an enriching future..."

The House of Antigua Artisans is located in the beautiful city of Antigua Guatemala, where thousands of visitors have... fallen in love with its culture and traditions. The group is made up of 10 people, mostly men, who are dedicated to making both fabrics and textile products.

"This all started with my grandfather, Roberto Flores, when job alternatives were scarce and he needed to be able to provide a decent livelihood for his family. My name is Francisco Flores. I was born in the beautiful city of Antigua Guatemala, known by many for its colonial beauty, in 1979. I have dedicated myself to making accessories, though of course you will wonder how I learned the art.

“In the 1970’s, my grandfather found that job opportunities were scarce, and he needed to be able to provide my dad and uncles with a decent livelihood. He began to experiment with different fabrics, using his sewing machine at home. He started making pillow covers; but the business was not very profitable, so he continued to experiment.

“One day, with the remains of some typical fabrics he had found in the craft market, he began to make a bag. The result was not what he expected, and without hesitation he gave it to my grandmother, who used it daily and treasured it a lot. One day when she was walking to the central park of the city, many people admired the bag. My grandfather could not believe it, because it was not something he liked, but it was part of his drive to continue making bags. And so after this, my grandfather found new clients and the work became his passion.

“My father grew up in the workshop that his father had adapted in a small room in the house. When I was 18 years of age, both my father and grandfather were still engaged in the work; but they were already tired, they were older, and that was when I started to get interested in it. It is part of a beautiful family legacy that I seek to preserve. Little by little and with much love, my father taught me the art. I was amazed with every detail; it was when I learned that even the small things matter--you always have to put in a lot of dedication.

“Time passed and I took charge of all the elaboration. By 30 years of age my experience was greater, but I could not cope with so much work. I began to call on my friends, and without hesitation they said yes. Teaching them as my father had taught me, and sharing my knowledge--believe me, there is nothing more enriching than that. Little by little everything was growing, and today we are already 10 people involved in this process. We are more than a team; we are a family, because with this many of us have been able to give our children schooling so that they can have an enriching future, not only financially, but full of values and education.

“Today we thank you for the opportunity that you have given us to be able to reach your homes. You will have in your hands products made with a lot of love. Each one is unique, and each one carries the story of a craftsman with many dreams and illusions for the future.”

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

Triple 'Win' Pricing

UNICEF Market offers triple win pricing, where YOU the consumer, Children from around the world, and Artisans all benefit.

WIN # 1 You Save!

Handmade goods from developing nations usually pass through a series of intermediaries before being purchased by retail consumers. Each of these intermediaries adds cost to the product, and that cost is passed on to the customer. UNICEF USA partnered with NOVICA, who works directly with artists through their regional offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America, allowing purchases from UNICEF Market to go directly from the artisans to fulfilling customer orders. By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.

WIN # 2 Children Benefit!

Each item purchased from UNICEF Market will benefit UNICEF's programs that provide lifesaving nutrition, medicine, education, clean water, emergency relief and more to children in need.

You can learn more about UNICEF's work, on About UNICEF.

WIN # 3 Artisans Profit!
