Artisanal Tocoyal Fringe Wrap - Magenta

$128.00

We're celebrating our 10 year anniversary with some of your favorite throw backs! 

Let's all welcome back our must-have colorful beaded fringe Tocoyal Head Wrap. Each wrap is traditionally worn wrapped in an indigenous woman's hair, but can be used as a belt, headband or home decor. Each is handmade by our long-term artisan partner Doña Maria in San Antonio Palopo. 

Features:

Newly woven. High-quality beading. Tassel Fringe. Every order comes with a protective multi-color dust bag and artisan information card!

One-of-a-kind:

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 same and imperfections are to be expected and appreciated. 

Community Impact: 

Guatemala is one of the slowest in rolling out the vaccine and tourism has not picked back up. And with every purchase you are directly helping a few different artisan families in Guatemala that have been waiting over a year for their stores to see new customers.

Hiptipico’s relationship with these long-term partners is built on trust, transparency, and mutual respect. Purchasing items with these vendors support a small local business, motivates local entrepreneurial spirits, and stimulates the local economy.

ORIGIN: SANTA ANTONIO PALOPÓ
ETHNICITY: MAYA KAQCHIQUEL

María lives and creates her magnificent designs in San Antonio Palopó with a group of women weavers in her community. To reach a larger market, the women travel everyday by public transportation to get to Panajachel to sell their handmade items by foot. Without a stand or locale, María carries most of her items on her head and walks the streets looking for potential shoppers. Working nearly 7-days a week, María is extremely innovative and eager to discuss exclusive designs and customizable products for new customers. Your support means a lot to Maria and the future of the women’s weaving cooperative. And if you ever come to visit, Maria loves to host visitors at her house as a part of our ethical weaving tours on Lake Atitlan!
