You will receive the same exact pattern and colors as pictured - the flowers may have a slightly different placement. 

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 same and imperfections are to be expected and appreciated. 

Community Impact: 

Our new embroidered straps are  part of our  Woven Collection  and support female weavers that do not have access to markets! This specific collection was created so you know exactly the female weaver behind your products. Every item in this collection was hand-embroidered or hand-woven by our female artisan partners [not the market]. Purchasing authentic textiles directly from female cooperatives allows us to have a full understanding of the entire supply chain and offer truly honest production. 

Shop knowing exactly the woman weaver behind your product!

Size: approx 42 inches long and approximately 3 inches wide.

Chontala Weaving Cooperative

Origin: Chontala, Quiché
Ethnicity: Maya K'iche'
After searching for traditional belt weavers in many rural villages outside of Chichicastenango, we were lucky enough to finally meet the female leader of the Chontala women's cooperative. The twenty artisans in this community specialize in embroidered belts called "fajas" that we then craft into our leather camera straps. Each faja can take anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks make, depending on the design. Your purchase helps these women receive a steady income to further support their families and preserve their culture.
