The Hiptipico name is derived from the Spanish word, “tipico,” which is the traditional clothing that indigenous Mayans wear in Guatemala. Incorporating the local word "tipico" into our name and using it as the basis of our brand, reinforces that we are truly dedicated to promoting traditional designs authentic to the Mayan people in the highlands of Guatemala.

Hiptipico’s mission is to create a sustainable avenue for high quality, artisan-level products to reach the global fashion marketplace. Our goal is to support the creativity, ingenuity and passion of these local artisans in Guatemala while preserving Mayan culture and traditions.

Hiptipico honors the Mayan culture, motivates local entrepreneurial spirits and empowers families and communities. Every Hiptipico item is thoughtfully handcrafted by indigenous communities, using high-quality sustainable materials.
