Are you looking for a great stocking stuffer for the holidays or do you simply just want something unique and hand-made to complete your favorite outfit? If you answered yes to either of those, you should check out Pura Vida Bracelets! The bracelets are very pretty and hand-made, they are 100% water proof and, to top it all off, the profit the company makes goes to a good cause.
Pura Vida started out when two friends went to Costa Rica in celebration of their college graduation. While there they met a man named Jorge who was peddling bracelets on the streets. It turned out that he had made the bracelets himself and was selling them to support his family, who were living in a single room and sharing three beds. This inspired the two friends to help. They took some of the bracelets home with them and sold them to some friends. Before long they had many people wanting a bracelet. They contacted Jorge and ordered more bracelets and before long it was a business.
The phrase “Pura Vida” is Spanish for Pure Life. It means to live life to its fullest and not let things worry you so much. This is a great name for this company because the bracelets are simple yet beautiful and each one is hand-made and unique. It is also a fitting name because for every bracelet sold, Pura Vida donates 1% to the Surfrider Foundation through 1% for the planet. They also provide full time jobs to the talented artisans of Costa Rica.
These beautiful bracelets are great for completing outfits, stuffing stockings, and even starting conversations. They are durable and water proof and completely unique. If you’re interested in learning more, visit the Pura Vida official website at PuraVidaBracelets.com!
