  • I approached this business with high expectations, but I found a value for money which I was discouraged. The quality of the products was good, but designs did not seem to me original nor competitive prices compared to those who I have seen in my travels by other countries, always offered by companies that work with indigenous communities, products and natural dyes. Three or four years ago that not passing by Antigua and, in general, prices have soared since then, and not only in this business.

  • The quality of work showcased at La Casa del Algodon is unlike anything you'll see in the markets. If you're interested in purchasing high quality textiles as a souvenir (and from a socially responsible entity), then this is the best place to shop. It's a small, intimate shop on the east-side of Antigua, a block south from Casa Santo Domingo. All their products are 100% natural cotton woven by hand in various Mayan communities around Guatemala. Each pattern tells a story and the wonderful shop hosts are happy to tell it to you! ~Theresa Atkins, Central America Vacation
