These bracelets and accessories are handcrafted by artisans in Costa Rica, and this company has given back to causes all over the world, not to mention the jobs and opportunities they continue to make available to the artisans and their families! . : ) They have a great story that really motivates and inspires us in our own ministry and journey of partnering with individuals and families across the world. These bracelets make wonderful gifts.
I love this quote from their site:
“Pura Vida” is Spanish for “pure life”, a Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. Slowing things down, celebrating good fortune, and refusing to take anything for granted embodies this laid back lifestyle. “Pura Vida” means choosing to live life to the fullest. It’s more than just a saying… it’s a lifestyle.
