Upon arrival to Lake Atitlan the local handcrafted artisan work attracts every eye. One of many things Mayans artisans are rightly proud of is their handcraft work which is sold in many forms worldwide. For some Guatemalan business owners, this line of work is an unreliable source of income, as it ebbs and flows with tourism.
Atitlan Leather was founded in attempt to alleviate this vulnerability small isolated towns experience. We do so by facilitating the creation and worldwide distribution of handmade leather products. Top that with great customer service and we ensure every purchase is an enjoyable experience!
It's not often you find someone who you work well with and enjoy spending time together as friends. A part from the daily grind Domingo and Walter maintain a close relationship and enjoy scouring the forest for izote and bananas to prepare for the next meal, playing soccer, and going for hikes. It's an incredible fact that even though you come from a different culture and background you still have so much in common with your fellow humans around the world. Our relationship and business are testament to that fact.
