Reading her caption below was such a clear reminder of wonderful days. She is one of the few people that u speak to for 10 seconds, and know she is the real deal. Selfless, curious and extremely fun and insightful are pale descriptions of such a hard-working and insightful individual. Reading her description of Hiptipico resonates so much with our goals and aesthetic here at AurumEve. It can get tricky, confusing and tiring at times...but thank you Alyssa for boldly setting an example and being a light. You are inspiring and motivating us continually, even when you don't know it <3. xoxo //follow, like and support art Hiptipico.com
// HIPTIPICO ORIGINAL CAPTION:
Looking back.... 3 years ago we attended our first tradeshow in nyc showcasing all handmade goods from Guatemala.

Unlike other ethical brands, we didn't go to a #fairtrade show or a handmade show. I personally took artisan-level products straight to one of the best fashion tradeshows in the industry.

Why? Hiptipico's curated collection features various artisans - all indigenous, all worthy of global recognition, all able to compete at the highest level. While Mayan artisans in Guatemala did not go to fashion design school they can compete with the best of the best in the fashion industry. Their techniques have been perfected across generations.

While this was definitely risky [picture a huge event with mainly black, grey, neutral collections] and many buyers and press did not even acknowledge our existence - the few who did really helped pave the way for Hiptipico. 
#FreePeople was our very first client and will always hold a very special place in my heart.

As an 'economist' [yes, I have my M.A. from #Georgetown in Economic Development] focusing on poverty reduction strategies in #LatinAmerica I never dreamed of launching a fashion brand.

I knew people, all people, deserved to have equal
