Lábrica: Modern Guatemalan Design

We came across Lábrica’s work while in Guatemala checking out the Simbiótica exhibition and immediately loved their work. The family-owned company works with traditional craftsman in Santa Lucia Milpas Altas, a small town near Antigua Guatemala, to make their modern wares, ensuring that each piece is of the highest quality. With a growing collection, we decided to take a second look.
