Artisanal Woven Rug - 2208
This beautiful Artisanal Wool Rug embraces the traditions of Guatemala. Each rug was purchased directly from the village of Momostenango where these rugs are handwoven by artisanal weavers using locally sourced virgin wool. Your purchase supports our sustainable project to provide dignified job opportunities to indigenous artisans in Guatemala.
Newly Woven with Virgin Wool
Every order comes with a protective multi-color dust bag and artisan information card!
No two rugs 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.
With every purchase, you are directly helping a few different artisan families in Guatemala that have been waiting 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.

Teresa and her family have been an essential part of the Hiptipico team since 2014. Dona Teresa is the highlight of our ethical tours, mother to our operations assistant, designer of our floral greeting cards and creator of the dust bag that protects each Hiptipico product. That means every single order at Hiptipico is touched by the love, creativity and pride of Doña Teresa and her family! The entire family is involved in their small business that started with her creative weaving talent! And thanks to your support, Teresa has had a dignified job opportunity making a living wage for the past 6 years to support her family of 10!

Don Vicente and his family have a quaint home workshop and local storefront in Panajachel. He comes from a family of rural sheep farmers and at a young age, he moved to Pana to start his own business producing a more extensive line of artisan goods using high quality materials and genuine leather. Over the years, he and his wife Ofelia have designed and perfectly curated a collection with unbeatable craftsmanship. They are a passionate family dedicated to incorporating the authentic indigenous culture into their work and passing these artisanal techniques down to their children. Now his son is the manager of their storefront and their daughters help with client relations which includes collaborating with us! We love being able to work alongside the next generation and create beautiful designs in teamwork with Don Vicente and his family!
