No two clutches 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 same and imperfections are to be expected and appreciated.
This bag 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 crafted with traditional weavings direct from our female artisan partners [not the market].

Teresa and several other women in a small village on the shore of Lake Atitlán started an artisan group dedicated to elaborating new embroideries. Originating out of the need to survive and support their growing families - their cooperative quickly became a hub for new artisan innovations. They successfully adapted to the oversaturated Guatemala tourist market by designing a completely new product - gorgeous woven greeting cards. Now, Teresa’s whole family is involved in the small business, sharing the responsibilities of selling and developing new ideas.
