Overview

Art Box is an arts and crafts center located in the hidden jewel of the Caribbean, Belize. This lush tropical country located in Central America has provided the inspiration for the Caribbean art and Belize art that we take pride in offering to the country and its visitors. Here at Art Box we have been designing and producing, beautiful, and elegant, high quality products inspired by the rich Belize culture and Caribbean culture since November of 1996 when we first opened our doors. We place the utmost importance on sharing authentic Belizean and Caribbean art with our customers, and in turn introducing the world to the culture of our magnificent country, Belize and the Caribbean. The authenticity of our products is evident in the fact that a large percentage of our merchandise is made by local Belizean artists and craftsmen. This allows us to provide a revenue and support for our local artists and in turn share their work and Belize culture with you. Through Art Box we have been able to come closer to our goal of bringing more affordable and functional luxuries into everyone's lives. We insist on product quality, customer service, product evaluation and improvement. We at Art Box have one true focus as a company and that is to allow everyone access to the products of Belize so that no matter where you are in the world we can bring the best that the Belize culture (and Caribbean culture) has to offer to your doorstep.

Lots of local mahogany art, and of very good quality—ranging from large furniture to masks, salad utensils and even smaller bookmarks. Every bit of it was good quality, the largest collection and best quality curios we saw in Belize

The Art Box features the work of local artists. They offer a ton of wood work, small art pieces and locally made hot sauces, coffee, etc. This is a serious art store not a souvenir shop. Check it out!
