Two weeks ago I got the opportunity to travel to Guatemala for a buying trip with one of my dearest friends. It was a much needed break from my everyday workload. I did not open my computer once in 5 WHOLE DAYS! It was amazing. We actually worked our butts off but worked more hands on by doing product development, connect face-to-face with artisans, collaborate on new designs, roam through the markets for inspiration, and spend a day at Lake Atitlan! The best work week I could have asked for!
It was so refreshing to spend time in Guatemala where I was continuously reminded of the beauty of indigenous craft and what MAVEN represents. So many incredible opportunities and artisans work to share this year!
Here is just a glimpse of our trip.
Hope you found a bit of global inspiration!
