Product Details:

Our Pillows are inspired by the Quedate en Casa movement to help flatten the curve of the Corona Virus! We know you are staying home to do your part, and now you can add a little huipil flavor and support artisans while lounging around. While we know some places are starting to open up slowly. We still want to support you in being comfortable at home! And that means loving your surroundings. Not only because it's just gorgeous, but because it does good for the world. And let's be honest, we need more of that right now. 

Its bold textile comes from a traditional corte of the village of  Totonicapan, Guatemala. The eye-catching colors and intricate pattern of the textile body was originally created on a foot loom by a female weaver. This corte was previously worn by an indigenous woman, has deep-rooted cultural significance and is in a vintage condition it also has textiles from repurposed traditional hand-woven cortes. Instead of throwing out these leftover scraps from past projects, we preserve their integrity and give them a second life! 

This pillow was designed and crafted by our artisan partner Vicente and Ofelia in a small home workshop. Your purchase supports our sustainable project to provide dignified job opportunities to indigenous artisans in Guatemala.

100% Cotton. Zipper Closure.

One-of-a-kind:

No two pillows 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. 

Community Impact:  

This pillow is part of our Zero Waste Collection, which features textiltreasures from indigenous villages all around Guatemala, a country world-famous for its intricate textiles and hand-embroidery. This collection is all about art appreciation and revival! When purchasing huipiles for crafting our artisanal bags, we make it our priority to select only textiles that could no longer be worn to truly give them a second life.
