Hip-Pip is not just one person.
Doris Mtotywa has been working with Pippa since just after Hip-Pip began. She is the lady who wields the power behind the sewing machines, and has considerable experience when it comes to beading and appliqueing.
The other two significant people who assist Hip-Pip on a weekly basis if not daily are Hadley and Gail Craig of Cape Knife Cutting and their team. Whilst not employed by Hip-pip, a fair amount of the leather work (ie cutting and stitching) is done by their team.
