Luxury Mini Backpack - 003
We're celebrating our 10 year anniversary with some of your favorite throw backs!
Let's all welcome back our Natural Dye Luxury Backpack that embrace the botanical and organic elements of Guatemala. This textile was hand-dyed in San Juan la Laguna using only organic plant materials and your purchase helps preserver this indigenous tradition. Each backpack is handmade in a small home workshop using full-grain leather and high-quality hardware.
High-quality leather. Interior Lining. Durable zippers. Additional storage. Exact backpack pictured. Please scroll through images to see more details. Not modifications or customizations available. Every order comes with a protective multi-color dust bag and artisan information card!
No two backpacks 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.
Guatemala is one of the slowest in rolling out the vaccine and tourism has not picked back up. And with every purchase you are directly helping a few different artisan families in Guatemala that have been waiting over a year for their stores to see new customers.
Hiptipico’s relationship with these long-term partners is built on trust, transparency, and mutual respect. Purchasing items with these vendors support a small local business, motivates local entrepreneurial spirits, and stimulates the local economy.

Rosa is the founder of a women’s cooperative in San Juan la Laguna, Lemá, that uses purely natural elements to create an entirely eco-friendly collection. This artisanal knowledge has been preserved over time and has been passed down from generation to generation. Learning directly from her grandmother, these ancient techniques use local plants to dye organic cotton. Rosa works with the women of her community to uphold this traditional art form and is eager to share these pure designs with the world.
