Be Authentic. Shop Authentic' 'this is the idea behind Hiptipico, a modern accessories label with ethical values at its heart. Launched in 2012 by designer Alyssa McGarry, the label creates a range of Hiptipico backpacks, clutches and handbags that are ethically produced in Guatemala, helping to support local artisans and preserve the traditions of Mayan culture. For the Hiptipico backpacks collection, expect to see a line of beautifully crafted leather and fabric designs, bursting with exotic prints and traditional recycled huipil embroidery from Chichicastenango, Guatemala. These eclectic pieces will bring a sense of wanderlust to any closet.
