Hiptipico.com is gearing up for the festival season by launching a fresh collection of ethnic wears giving this year’s festival goers an unique choice to stand out. Showcasing all one-of-a-kind items, customers will surely be able to find the statement piece that will steal the show.
Individually embroidered in Guatemala, Hiptipico’s festival line is not only your go-to for bold prints and colors, but each piece is ethically produced and provides Mayan women with steady employment.
“No two pieces are the same and one can see and feel the passion and dedication behind each embroidery pattern and color selection.” Hiptipico founder, Alyssa McGarry, says. “This year’s feature, the vintage huipil shrug, takes authenticity to a whole new level repurposing Mayan blouses and using upcycled textiles for the fringing embellishment.”
As you decide on a backpack for your festival necessities, consider one that gives back to education and the environment. The company’s extensive backpack line features authentic floral and geometric prints from recycled materials around Lake Atitlan and gives 10% directly back to education programs in Guatemala.
Carrying through the summer months, Hiptipico’s curated collection out of Guatemala is expected to surpass other ethical brands in the region for its genuine cultural sensitivity, fair pricing and transparent artisan relationships. Free People, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21 and Topshop are amongst other big companies carrying Hiptipico’s line and supporting the brands efforts to engage in fast fashion with the added bonus of a social mission to end poverty in Guatemala.
Every Hiptipico purchase empowers female Guatemalan artisans to preserve their Mayan culture. Shop the festival and summer collection our online store today!
