Product Details:

Our new Goddess Tote Bag is hand-embroidered by our female weaving cooperative in the mountains outside of Chichicastenango. Each Goddess Tote is elaborated with 100% Egyptian cotton embroidery using a traditional technique with intricate needlework taking 1 – 2 days to complete. By purchasing directly from female artisans, you are supporting a sustainable effort to pay above a living wage, provide steady employment, and impact entire indigenous families.

Features:

100% Cotton Textile Base | 100% Egyptian Cotton Thread | Hand Washable
Includes a dust bag, pom pom tassel, and artisan card. 

One-of-a-kind:

No two totes 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. 

Community Impact:  

This tote 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 hand-embroidered or hand-woven by our female artisan partners [not the market]. Purchasing authentic textiles directly from female 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!

After searching for traditional belt weavers in many rural villages outside of Chichicastenango, we were lucky enough to finally meet Manuela, the leader of the Chontala Women's Weaving Cooperative in 2017! Manuela, Pascuala and the women in their cooperative specialize in the intricate embroidery of belts called “fajas” that we use for our camera straps. Each belt is made new and can take anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks to make depending on the design. Now, the women are taking on a new embroidery project, creating our intricate floral face masks. Your purchase helps these women receive a steady income to further support their families and preserve their culture.
