About Us

Our Story

Central American Trade Company, Inc. was created in 1987 from a Dallas apartment when one of its two founders started offering and selling Guatemalan arts and crafts, hand woven trims and wearable products to local manufacturers and craft stores which were popular in the US market at the time.  Since then the company has evolved and while still offering traditional Guatemalan woven items and crafts now produces custom made apparel and accessories to US based retailers, manufacturers and distributors.

Our Dallas based sales office services all US accounts with personal, meticulous dedication which ensures the best quality products and competitive prices our customers expect.
