Arcadia Home's line of ceramic ornaments is the product of a collaboration with a family-run artisan workshop operating near Antigua, Guatemala. Terracotta and ceramic craftsmanship has been crucial to the development of Mesoamerica since prehistory, and this workshop continues in that tradition despite the proliferation of plastic in local markets. This workshop is a force in the Guatemalan handmade scene that motivates artisans throughout the region to innovate in design and technology.

Through our participation, we are aligning Arcadia Home with the Alliance's central missions: To preserve traditional artforms and techniques; to provide steady employment for artisans around the world (with an emphasis on women); and to foster economically viable conditions for the practice of craft.

As handmade pieces, each Arcadia Home design is as unique as the artisan who created it.
