About Argenthings

It was 2013 when I, Guillermo, had the chance to join in a students trip organized by my university to the following destinations: Hong Kong, China and South Korea. I specialized in International Trade.
Once I got back to Argentina, I decided to do something on my own, in order to share some Argentine culture, but it should has some features:

  • Handcrafted items
  • 100% made in Argentina
  • High quality
  • Fair trade (learn more below)
  • Worldwide shipping

Argenthings officially borned in February 2014, a small yerba mate accessories business based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since the first day I run the business by myself (yes! I am the photographer, the web developer, the customer service, and also the creator of some of the models you can find here).

I started working with a handcrafter located in Buenos Aires, however I was not completely satisfied, I really wanted to meet and support more handcrafters from other provinces of Argentina as well. The far they are located from Buenos Aires, the harder to cover their daily needs.

Nowadays Argenthings is working and supporting more than 12 handcrafters from 6 different provinces of Argentina. It took me almost 2 years to get in touch will all of them. Some of the items that are displayed on the site needed more than 40 days to be made, by hand, and, all of them have a charachteristic in common, they were made with love.

I would like to say THANK YOU for your support. For me this is like a helpful chain, without your interest and support, I could not support all handcrafters and their families, there are more people than you can imagine behind every single item.

Thank you again for reading this section and for your precious time!
Warm regards from Argentina,
