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 the same and imperfections are to be expected and appreciated.
Hiptipico leather bags are crafted and designed by local artisans in small home workshops. These artisanal workshops are indigenous-owned and purchasing items with these vendors supports a small local business, motivates local entrepreneurial spirits and stimulates the local economy.
Hiptipico bags are crafted using sustainable leather. We are conscious to source from leather providers that have sustainable practices and view leather as a byproduct of the meat industry. This prevents future waste and utilizes all parts of the animal.

María lives and creates her magnificent designs in San Antonio Palopó with a group of women weavers in her community. To reach a larger market, the women travel everyday by public transportation to get to Panajachel to sell their handmade items by foot. Without a stand or locale, María carries most of her items on her head and walks the streets looking for potential shoppers. Working nearly 7-days a week, María is extremely innovative and eager to discuss exclusive designs and customizable products for new customers. Your support means a lot to Maria and the future of the women’s weaving cooperative. And if you ever come to visit, Maria loves to host visitors at her house as a part of our ethical weaving tours on Lake Atitlan!
