No two straps 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.
Our new embroidered straps are part of our Woven Collection and support female weavers that do not have access to markets! This specific collection was created so you know exactly the female weaver behind your products. Purchasing authentic textiles directly from female cooperatives allows us to have a full understanding of the entire supply chain and offer truly honest production.

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.
