Carry your bag or camera in style with this one of a kind, eye-catching strap!

Our Market Collection features textiltreasures from Maya villages all around Guatemala, a country world famous for its intricate textiles and hand-embroidery. This collection is all about art appreciation and revival! When purchasing belts for crafting our embroidered straps, we make it our priority to select only embroideries that could no longer be worn to truly give them a second life.

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. 

Length: Approx 7 inches long.
