Photo Diary from Antigua, Guatemala

Posted on August 03 2017

One of my favorite aspects of this fashion adventure is all of the wonderful people I get to meet and places I get to experience.  A couple of weeks ago I took a trip to Guatemala to meet with some of our DOLANmakers and venture off the grid for a little excursion to Antigua.   I was so taken with this charming and special place.: bright colors, lovely people, beautiful landscapes, and incredible textiles…  With so much inspiration around every corner, I feel compelled to share a few photos I took along the way.

It was love at first sight for me and Antigua .  LLAMAS were the first things I laid eyes on (and if you know me, you know I am in love with these magical creatures).  These were on the grounds of the Filadelfia Coffee Plantation.

Upon arrival to my hotel, a converted colonial style convent (how’s that alliteration!) called Casa Santo Domingo.
