The Guatemalan Boutique, LLC is a fair trade import company dedicated to providing its clientele with authentic indigenous art pieces from Guatemala and Mexico.

Our commitment is to provide quality folk art pieces to our clients and ensuring fair pay to the indigenous artisans. Setting foot in one of the boutiques guarantees to transport you to the vibrant richness of the Guatemalan and Mexican cultures – its wide array of folk art, including the hand crafted sterling silver jewelry will introduce you to the fascinating culture of the Mayan and Aztec worlds.

The boutique in San Juan Bautista has been established since June 2004 while Galeria Arte in downtown Los Gatos opened its doors in June of 2011.

Amongst the carefully hand picked folk art you can find a large collection of traditional (made in Mexico) "Dia de los Muertos" pieces. In this large selection you can find colorfully painted burnish clay from Puebla and Metepec, talavera and tin from Guanajuato, clay and ceramic from Michoacan, hand carved wood figures from Oaxaca,  sterling silver jewelry from Taxco and Oaxaca, and random folk art pieces from technically all over Mexico.  The owner takes pride in promoting "cultura" and supporting men and women artist with limited means in their native countries.  The celebration of "Dia de los Muertos" is a great opportunity to introduce people to the magical traditions and history of Mexico!

The store in Los Gatos hosted its yearly "Dia de los Muertos Celebration" this past Saturday, October 20th while the store in San Juan Bautista will showcase an altar this coming Saturday, October 27th from 1pm-7pm.  Although the day of the dead is celebrated in early November, we choose to carry a large selection of collectable day of the day items throughout the year; in addition, it is worthy to mention that special requests are gladly taken!

The Guatemalan Boutique, LLC is located at 302 Third St., in beautiful historic San Juan Bautista, CA  95045 and we open from Wednesday through Sunday 11-5pm. Galeria Arte, Guatemalan and Mexican Folk Art! is located at 50 North Santa Cruz Ave., in Downtown Los Gatos, CA 95030 (408) 395-0403.  Our website is www.guatemalanboutique.com <http://www.guatemalanboutique.com>  and the owner, Claudia Lopez can be reached at claudia@guatemalanboutique.com
