The socially conscious brand works with individual artisans as well as female weaving cooperatives in rural Guatemala all while giving back to education programs. A percent of the company’s precedes go directly to a Mayan Scholarship fund, helping to send their artisan partners’ children to school.
The name Hiptipico comes from the Spanish word “tipico” and refers to the traditional clothing that indigenous Mayans wear in Guatemala. 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.
