Vintage Embroidered Strap
MADE TO ORDER IN JUST 6 WEEKS.
Our Vintage Embroidered Straps are designed for your bag, camera or guitar! The unique embroidery is one-of-a-kind and was crafted with a repurposed vintage belt called a faja. This unique faja was sustainable sourced from our long-standing artisan partner Noemi in the Chichicastenango market. This belt was previously worn by an indigenous woman, has deep-rooted cultural significance and is in vintage condition.
The leather part of the strap was carefully crafted by our artisan partner Don Vicente and Ofelia in a small home workshop using top-grain leather. Your purchase supports our sustainable project to provide dignified job opportunities to indigenous artisans in Guatemala.

No two straps are the same! Hiptipico prides itself on uniqueness and authenticity. Every Hiptipico product is 100% handmade and has the human touch of the weaver and maker in each stitch. This makes our products uniquely charming and distinct from factory-made accessories. No two are exactly the same and imperfections are to be expected and appreciated.
This strap is part of our Zero Waste Collection, which features textile treasures from indigenous villages all around Guatemala, a country world-famous for its intricate textiles and hand-embroidery. This collection is all about art appreciation and revival! When purchasing fajas for crafting our camera and bag straps, we make it our priority to select only textiles that could no longer be worn to truly give them a second life.
