About Hiptipico:

Hiptipico ethical fashion brand is a carefully curated collection of authentic artisan-level products designed by the Mayan people and thoughtfully handcrafted in Guatemala.

Hiptipico's initiative creates a sustainable avenue for local artisans to sell their unique handmade items to a larger global market. Hiptipico strives to find the highest quality items and provide them at a reasonable price for the consumer while providing a steady income for local businesses and their families. Working directly with multiple vendors, cooperatives, and families in Guatemala, Hiptipico cultivates relationships and directly provides additional revenue into the local economy.

The Hiptipico brand fosters an environment for socially responsible consumers who are seeking an alternative to mass-produced and copied designs. Every single Hiptipico item is 100% authentic and is ethically produced.

Hiptipico honors the Mayan culture, motivates local entrepreneurial spirits and empowers families and communities.
