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 the same and imperfections are to be expected and appreciated.
Our new embroidered straps are part of our Woven Collection and support female weavers that do not have access to markets! All of the embroidered straps in our Woven Collection are made by female artisans in the surrounding villages of Chichicastenango, Quiche, Guatemala. Your purchase directly supports these women and their families. 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!

We are so impressed by the coordination of the Ut'z Bat'z weaving cooperative. Their group leader Maria, reached out to us at Hiptipico searching for a way to expand their production and to help provide a more stable income for all the women in their cooperative. The female artisans in this group have some of the most intricate floral embroidery and a very efficient process in making embroidered belts called "fajas"! Meaning, when you purchase a camera strap from our woven collection, you can shop knowing you're helping provide a dignified job opportunity for female weavers.

Don Vicente and his family have a quaint home workshop and local storefront in Panajachel. He comes from a family of rural sheep farmers and at a young age, he moved to Pana to start his own business producing a more extensive line of artisan goods using high quality materials and genuine leather. Over the years, he and his wife Ofelia have designed and perfectly curated a collection with unbeatable craftsmanship. They are a passionate family dedicated to incorporating the authentic indigenous culture into their work and passing these artisanal techniques down to their children. Now his son is the manager of their storefront and their daughters help with client relations which includes collaborating with us! We love being able to work alongside the next generation and create beautiful designs in teamwork with Don Vicente and his family!
