No two bags 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.
Hiptipico convertible bags are crafted and designed by local artisans in small home workshops. These artisanal workshops are indigenous-owned and purchasing items with these vendors supports a small local business, motivates local entrepreneurial spirits and stimulates the local economy.

ETHNICITY: MAYA K’ICHÉ’
Originally from the culturally rich village of Chichicastenango, Maria and her family have been in the used textile business for over 20 years now! Doña María is the matriarch of her family and total jefa managing various stalls in markets across Guatemala. Her children Edgar and Lidia have continued their family's legacy and are known for sourcing some of the best vintage pieces honoring all the huipiles of Guatemala. To show their loyalty to their Maya roots, all the women in Maria's family graciously wear their traditional garb, speak the indigenous language K'iche' and are passing all this cultural knowledge down to their children, Maria's grandchildren!

ETHNICITY: MAYA K’ICHÉ’
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!
