Pura Vida is a homemade jewelry and accessory company that provides full-time jobs for 650 artisans in Costa Rica, El Salvador, and India. Pura Vida means pure life and is all about slowing down and enjoying life to the fullest.
“We came across two local artisans named Jorge and Joaquin while on a surf trip in Costa Rica in 2010. They were struggling to survive on their artisan wages and we wanted to help out in any way that we could. We bought 400 bracelets to take home and sell back in California and after just a few days on display in a local boutique. the bracelets were completely sold out! That’s when Pura Vida Bracelets was born, ” said Griffin Thall, co-founder of Pura Vida.
Their hottest sellers are the cute and colorful Dreaming Outloud packs. Hailey Miller designed the Dreaming Outloud 2019 edition with VW Bus Camper and Dreaming Outloud pack with a bright and cheery sunflower.
