About us

Tesoros Maya Co. is a small company based in Dripping Springs, Texas working directly with Guatemalan indigenous family businesses and non-profit social enterprises to source newly woven and vintage Guatemalan fabrics and accessories.

My name is Angelica, I am the founder of Tesoros Maya Co. I am a Chapina (Guatemalan) born and raised. When I was 10, my mother made the difficult journey to pursue the American dream and transplanted my siblings and me into the American lifestyle. As a child immigrant, I know first hand the pain and emptiness of leaving love ones and family behind. I carry a strong sense of commitment to helping Guatemalan children and their families avoid the horrible journey of coming to this country the same way I did.  I am a mother and a wife, with a long standing desire to honor my Maya ancestry. Tesoros Maya was born as a legacy to my children; a platform to instill a sense of pride and honor for my colorful Maya culture and its traditions.

At the same time, I am honored to use this platform to empower Guatemalan women and their families by providing them with a fair wage and sustainable income, while at the same time promoting ethical and sustainable work practices.

And just like you and me, these women are following their dreams of being self-sufficient entrepreneurs and giving their family a life filled with prosperity and peace. Tesoros Maya provides them a venue to sell their work directly to you.

As a mother, I am making it my personal mission to teach my children the beauty and true meaning of hand-made and artisan-made. We work alongside artisans, crafts-people, and talented weavers in Guatemala to preserve traditional techniques and provide an outlet for them to sell their goods. My goal is that your children, along with mine, are able to appreciate and differentiate handmade from factory-made toys and gifts.

My goal is that our children learn that their purchasing choices have power!


I am most grateful for this opportunity and the ability to showcase the entrepreneurial spirit of the Maya world, and to you, for supporting this ongoing effort to empower indigenous communities in Guatemala through fair trade practices.

Thank you for your support and for joining our family on this journey!



Every month, a percentage of every sale is donated to several non-profit educational and social enterprises including weaving cooperatives and schools in rural Guatemala. Your purchase helps create a positive impact in the lives of Guatemalan families that are seeking work and a better life. Thank you!
