Rebooting Dreams

‘Guatemala – Rebooting Dreams’ invites visitors and voyagers to take rest in the dreamlike surroundings of an abstracted Guatemalan house – the ideal setting for the mixing of traditional patterns and contemporary fabrics by the country’s emerging designers. With a focus on – and deep respect for – the promotion of artisans and artisanal traditions, they employ a magic touch to overcome the challenges of working in a country in developmental flux, bringing Guatemalan tradition into the 21st century with universal appeal.
