Today I received my second Pura Vida monthly shipment and I am just as pleased with this order as I was the first. The first order went to my 12 year old niece who was thrilled to receive these as a gift.
About the Service
Pura Vida is a monthly subscription service that sends three handmade bracelets by local artisans in Costa Rica. The value of the bracelets is about $50.00. Purchases help provide full-time jobs to the said artisans. Here’s an excerpt from the PuraVida website.
While traveling through Costa Rica, Griffin and Paul crossed paths with two bracelet peddlers named Jorge and Joaquin. The colorful handmade bracelets seemed to capture the essence of their journey. At the time Jorge and Joaquin were living in poverty. They slept with their family in a single crammed room with three beds. After seeing this, Griffin and Paul asked Jorge and Joaquin to make 400 bracelets to take home with them. No one would have expected for this casual encounter to grow into the successful partnership that it is today.
The cost is $14.95/month with option to cancel at anytime. Currently, I expect to receive a few more shipments as I am preparing for the upcoming holiday season.
Have you tried Pura Vida bracelets before or are you currenly subscribed? If so, I would love to hear about your experience and see a picture or two.
