We send you images of textiles according to the checkout note you left us with your personal aesthetic until you find the perfect one! We arrange a time for you to shop with us virtually!
Worried you won't find exactly what you're looking for? We go to the market 1-2 times a week to source just for you! Being based in Guatemala gives us the unique ability to provide you, the client with endless options! As long as you are patient, we've never failed to find someone's dream textile!
5 ≫ Once you respond YES to a textile image, that confirms your choice!
We are happy to keep hunting until you find the textile of your dreams. Our team can send new option images every week! But, we cannot return the textile or change your choice after you confirm with a written yes.
6 ≫ Your textile goes to our artisan's small home workshop.
Your bag or strap can take 3 - 4 weeks to be carefully handcrafted. We will be in touch about specific processing times depending on your design.
No Returns ≫ All Custom Order Sales Are Final
≫ ∙ ≫ More details about sizing, style, textiles and leather!
While our artisans can customize any bag style or shape, we generally work with two main sizes. Our MEDIUM dimensions are H 11", W 15", D 5" and our LARGE dimensions are H 14", W 20", D 6" The bag shape will alter slightly depending on the size of the huipil (embroidery) and location of the leather. Medium sized bags are perfect for everyday use while our large size functions as the perfect weekender or travel bag!
Leather Quality & Style
Hiptipico custom bags and straps are crafted using exclusively Top-Grain leather. We work with our artisans to source high-quality hides in tan and black colors. Please note, color tone can vary slightly from the image and natural markings are to be expected and appreciated.
Vegan is available in tan and black in a "leather like" finish. The composition of our vegan leather is plastic synthetic fibers and does not hold up as long as natural leather.
