Nada Duele is a Guatemala-based lifestyle brand focusing on home goods and accessories. It was founded in 2019 by multidisciplinary artist couple Giselle MacDonald and Mariano Vadillo in an effort to create unique and sustainable pieces combining the essence of Guatemalan craftsmanship and contemporary design.
We work collaboratively with master artisans across Guatemala to create functional and multipurpose objects, ensuring craft preservation and job creation in this region. We believe in manufacturing beautiful, ethically made products that don’t cause any harm to anyone or anything during and after their creation process, hence the name Nada Duele (in Spanish, “nothing hurts”).
Our designs are informed and inspired by avant-garde art movements such as Dadaism and Bauhaus, Mediterranean aesthetics, traditional craft, and natural textiles.
