Cesario moved to Panajachel over forty years ago in search of a better life for him and his young family. It was then that he started his fabric store, making it one of the oldest establishments in town! After sourcing foot loom fabric for so long, Cesario has a strong network of weavers around the lake. Many Hiptipico products are made with loom fabric from Cesario’s store, making him an integral part of our production process.
