Hiptipico Huipil Museum

Hiptipico was founded in 2012 with the overarching goal to create a sustainable space to preserve and appreciate indigenous art, culture and stories.

During a more recent visit to the village of Quiejel, our artisan partner Yolanda showed us this rare huipil worn by her mother Ana. It was the last one left in her entire collection, as her elderly mother was pressured into selling all of her huipiles for under $2.00 to buyers taking them to the textile market.

Hearing that story was the inspiration behind putting our Permanent Huipil Collection online for others to honor, learn and value these indigenous works of art.
