The selection is amazing. The staff is very helpful. The prices are higher than you will find in the Mercado but the quality is way above or there areas. I bought several pieces and that are the most beautiful I've seen.

I enjoyed my visit to the store and looked at everything they had to offer. Lovely quality but a bit pricey for me personally. I took a star off because of the prices. A set of 6 placemats and napkins were $650 Q or about $120 Canadian. Definitely worth a look though.

We stopped by Colibri on day one of our trip and I just could not leave Antigua without getting something from here. There are several other stores around the city that carry table linens but they are not near the quality. Colibri has something for everyone both traditional bright colored patterns as well as neutral offerings. The women in the... More

If you are looking for good quality Guatemalan textiles, you must visit Colibri. The minute you walk in the door you are amazed at the colors, designs and high quality of the work. Also this shop aids Mayan women from small villages distribute their fine textiles so your purchase helps these women continue their craft. They are happy to calculate... More

I stopped in this store that is close to the Central Park of Antigua and was immediately drawn in by the beautiful work of local women. I purchased a cooking apron and several placemat sets for a very reasonable price. The back story of the shop is incredible too.

If you're on a budget and want colorful souvenirs, don't go to Colibri. Stick with the innumerable craft markets where you can get mass produced goods for almost nothing. You'll be much happier. However, if you have taste and know textiles or want to learn about them and if you want traditional Guatemalan textiles, this is the place for you.... More

If you want to buy gorgeous things and feel good about spending your money, come to Colibri. A fabulous array of woven goods made by local craftspeople. One cloth/towel/placemat/tablecloth/etc. is more beautiful than the next. Prices are very competitive as well. Happily there are only three rooms of merchandise else I fear we would have cashed in our return tickets... More

A number of years my husband brought back a gorgeous table cloth from Colibí. So number one of my places to visit was this shop. As other reviewers have stated the quality is the best. The fabrics are finely woven and colors pure and distinctive. I bought gifts for friends and myself including placemats, napkins, shopping bags, purses, coin purses,... More

I spent a month in Guatemala and everywhere I went, I was looking for high quality table linens that were made by local weavers. I wanted placemats and coasters that were durable and attractive. I found three high quality woven goods shops in Antigua and they each had beautiful and unique (to each other) goods. Colibri is an outstanding shop... More

Colibri is one of the best place for Guatemalan handwoven textiles. They are woven by women of a local comunity on a "fair trade" basis. Colibri has probably the best quality local tablecloths, napkins and other accessories like coasters you can find in Guatemala and yes quality has its price!
