Juan Platero aims to bring Guatemalan culture to women outside of Central America by designing stylish accessories with a Mayan flair. The small workshop is located in San Miguel Escobar, a coffee farming town outside of Antigua. Most families work in the agricultural industry, with most women only having seasonal work picking the coffee bean harvest. Juan Platero gives women the rare opportunity to have stable, permanent employment while learning a new craft-based skill set.
