Actual Pom Tassel Pictured
These fun XL pom's are irresistible. The easy to loop construction offers endless styling possibilities. Add to your favorite bag, hang over a doorway or attach to any zipper. These pompoms provide steady employment to a small group of women in the rural mountains of Guatemala. Woven at home allows women to stay in their village to care for the children while receiving fair wages.
100% Cotton. Braided detail.
No two poms 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.
This pom is part of our Woven Collection and supports female weavers that don't 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 crafted with traditional weavings direct from our female artisan partners [not the market]. Purchasing authentic textiles directly from weaving 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!

Zoila grew up the small town of San Andres, just up the mountainside from Panajachel and her husband is originally from a village 6 hours away called Todos Santos. They eventually met in Panajachel when Julian moved to the tourist town to open a traditional handicrafts store with his parents. Now, Zoila and Julian together continue to run the family business in Panajachel, bringing in the unique vibe of Julian’s hometown. The combination of years of professional experience and a trained eye make for an extremely curated shop. The couple have been married for over 20 years and have four beautiful children who also help out at the family store when they are done with their studies.
