Shop for Good Through The Atitlán Project

If you're looking for some new home furnishings and decor and want to put your money towards a worthwhile cause at the same time, then you can shop for good at west elm through The Atitlán Project. A partnership with designer Diego Olivero, The Atitlán Project was created to support the community of Santa Catarina Polopo on the shores of Lake Atitlán in Guatemala.

As part of The Atitlán Project, west elm has pledged to donate $100,000 to Santa Catarina Polopo to aid with community initiatives that stimulate economic growth. When you make a purchase from the collection, 50% of the price will go directly towards this donation. It won't be hard to find something you love.

Unique and Vibrant Home Furnishings

The delightful home furnishings available as part of The Atitlán Project represent a collaboration between Mitzie Wong and Wendy Wurtzburger of Roar + Rabbit and Diego Olivero. Each piece in this limited-edition collection is woven, embellished and embroidered by hand. The colors are inspired by the traditional garments of Santa Catarina Polopo, which feature deep hues of purple, turquoise, blue and red.

Different furniture pieces available in these gorgeous prints include a mid-century upholstered dining chair, an upholstered bed, a curved upholstered headboard, an ottoman and multiple accent chair designs that will each look as stunning as the last next to a solid color upholstered loveseat. The collection also includes a selection of rugs available in four bright and bold designs that will instantly draw the eye.

Beautiful Decor to Bring Life to Any Room

You will find a wide variety of eye-catching decor among The Atitlán Project collection as well. Shop for good from a selection of wall art featuring vivid colors and strong patterns that will make the space feel more lively and welcoming. Discover decorative items like beaded pouches, card decks and handmade planters that you can use to add a little extra style to a side table or pick up a pure organic cotton beach towel featuring a striking design. The patterns and motifs used in the decor are all derived from traditional stories and each has a special meaning for the Lake Atitlán community.

An Initiative You Can Believe In

The Atitlán Project celebrates the artistry of the Lake Atitlán region while helping the artisans and the rest of the community build a more prosperous and sustainable future. It's a great way to shop for good and put your money towards an initiative you would like to support. The piece of furniture or decor that you purchase will serve as a reminder of your contribution and a lovely statement piece in your home for many years to come.
