Sling Bag - Jimena
Made to order in just 6 weeks.
Our Jimena Sling Bag is artisanally made with top-grain leather and a traditional huipil from the village of Patzún, Guatemala. The eye-catching colors and intricate pattern of the textile body was originally created on a back-strap loom and feature hand-embroidery by a female weaver. This huipil was previously worn by an indigenous woman, has deep-rooted cultural significance, and is in vintage condition.
This sling bag was crafted by our artisan partner Don Vicente and Ofelia in a small home workshop and the textile was sustainably sourced from our long-term artisan partner Elena at the textile market in Panajachel. Your purchase supports our sustainable project to provide dignified job opportunities to indigenous artisans in Guatemala.

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 leather 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.
