About us

Mercado Global is a social enterprise with an innovative approach to fighting poverty and empowering women in rural Guatemala. By providing business development support and connecting artisan cooperatives to international sales opportunities in the on an unprecedented scale, Mercado Global is helping its partner artisans to be a source of change in global sourcing practices.

Each Mercado Global collection starts with a journey to the highlands of Guatemala where our designers partner with indigenous women artisans to develop unique pieces that combine Mayan craftsmanship with modern design. From one of the most marginalized populations in the world, our partner artisans are rising to become leaders in their communities and are sending their children to school, often for the first time.

Mercado Global's sales partners include Anthropologie, Calypso St. Barth, Levi Strauss, and ABC Carpet & Home, among others. Newsweek has also featured Mercado Global on its cover and Good Morning America, Elle Decor, and others have showcased the organization's designs.
