No two pillows 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.
ORIGIN: PATZÚN, CHIMALTENANGO
ETHNICITY: MAYA KAQCHIKEL
Doña Elena, Doña Juana and Helencita are our favorite vendors to visit at the Panajachel Bomberos Textile Market. Their families have been selling at this market for close to 20 years and they have the most incredible collection of huipiles from their village of Patzún, Chimaltenango. These huipiles are most easily identified by their gorgeous embroidered flowers at the neckline with a maroon striped woven body to follow. All of the Patzún textiles we use are sustainably sourced from Doña Elena and your purchase supports this hard-working female artisan family.
