If you are looking for good quality Guatemalan textiles, you must visit Colibri. The minute you walk in the door you are amazed at the colors, designs and high quality of the work. Also this shop aids Mayan women from small villages distribute their fine textiles so your purchase helps these women continue their craft. They are happy to calculate... More

I stopped in this store that is close to the Central Park of Antigua and was immediately drawn in by the beautiful work of local women. I purchased a cooking apron and several placemat sets for a very reasonable price. The back story of the shop is incredible too.

If you're on a budget and want colorful souvenirs, don't go to Colibri. Stick with the innumerable craft markets where you can get mass produced goods for almost nothing. You'll be much happier. However, if you have taste and know textiles or want to learn about them and if you want traditional Guatemalan textiles, this is the place for you.... More

If you want to buy gorgeous things and feel good about spending your money, come to Colibri. A fabulous array of woven goods made by local craftspeople. One cloth/towel/placemat/tablecloth/etc. is more beautiful than the next. Prices are very competitive as well. Happily there are only three rooms of merchandise else I fear we would have cashed in our return tickets... More

A number of years my husband brought back a gorgeous table cloth from Colibí. So number one of my places to visit was this shop. As other reviewers have stated the quality is the best. The fabrics are finely woven and colors pure and distinctive. I bought gifts for friends and myself including placemats, napkins, shopping bags, purses, coin purses,... More

I spent a month in Guatemala and everywhere I went, I was looking for high quality table linens that were made by local weavers. I wanted placemats and coasters that were durable and attractive. I found three high quality woven goods shops in Antigua and they each had beautiful and unique (to each other) goods. Colibri is an outstanding shop... More

Colibri is one of the best place for Guatemalan handwoven textiles. They are woven by women of a local comunity on a "fair trade" basis. Colibri has probably the best quality local tablecloths, napkins and other accessories like coasters you can find in Guatemala and yes quality has its price!

Handwoven fabrics used in updated designs for the home (some apparel too). I especially like the bedspreads (not inexpensive) and table top items. This place is very well displayed and in fact, the whole of the operation is primera clase.

This is a great find! I bought several cushion covers here and some napkins. They also have beautiful tablecloths, bedcovers, bags, luggage labels and place mats. Highly recommended!

I found this store via Lonely Planet nine years ago, and I’m not sure why the LP guide no longer lists them, as they are located in the same place and offer the same high quality at fair prices as they did a decade ago. It is an excellent store because it is the collective effort of a group of... More
