Tipica (adj): typical or characteristic; full of local color; rich in folklore; traditional. In Guatemala it refers to hand-crafted items, both traditional and modern. 

At the Tipica Market, you can shop for beautiful handmade goods, called tipica, created by Guatemalan artists and artisans in our program. You’ll find a wide selection of textiles and jewelry including handbags upcycled from vintage huipiles, beaded bracelets, and hand-woven scarves. Best of all, each purchase empowers the women in our program to build a better life for themselves and their families. Each item is made by the talented entrepreneurs in our Artisan Market Access program. We work closely with each of them to develop the skills they need to design and produce market-ready products at local, national, and international levels. Our artists‘ and artisans’ tipica products are made in accordance with Fair Trade guidelines.
