No two bags 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 same and imperfections are to be expected and appreciated.
Our leather bags are part of our Small Business Collection which features products crafted and designed by Maya artisans themselves in small home workshops. These artisanal workshops are owned by indigenous families who have their entire production established.
Hiptipico’s relationship with these long-term partners is built on trust, transparency and mutual respect. Purchasing items with these vendors supports a small local business, motivates local entrepreneurial spirits and stimulates the local economy.
Our Small Business Collection was created to support the creativity, ingenuity and passion of local Guatemalan businesses while preserving Maya culture and traditions.
