"It’s time to use your voice and your power to transform the fashion industry into a force for good."
Hiptipico is so excited to participate in this years #fashionrevolution movement and help create awareness around the topic of #whomademyclothes.
When founding Hiptipico, Alyssa's goal was to create an avenue for conscious consumers to purchase directly from artisans in Guatemala. Knowing the actual person, their story and handmade technique behind each product is nonexistent in the high fashion industry.
Little by little @hiptipico//@hiptipicomarket and other ethical brands are bringing light to this topic.
We are so honored to have been recognized and featured via some larger fashion companies such as Free People, Asos, Urban Outfitters, TopShop, Forever21 all helping to tell the story of Hiptipico and our Mayan artisan partners in Guatemala.
Thanks to everyone here on for your support and genuine interest in Hiptipico's journey. Let's keep it up and you too can join the revolution and be curious!
Find out who made your clothes.
Who grew the cotton, spun the threads, dyed
the fabric and who sewed them together?
Vicente (pictured) is the maker of many Hiptipico backpacks. In a small home workshop, him and family members construct and design different styles of backpacks, most notably, our Wanderlust Backpack. 10% of backpack sales goes to education programs in Guatemala, now is a great time to give back and join this Fashion Revolution!
