Pura & Simple

Feel Good Friday

There is a saying in Costa Rica that is used as a greeting, a farewell, a way to give thanks and a way to express that things are going well.  “Pura Vida” (or “pure life”) has become a way of life.

There is no question where this cultural focus on living purely takes root...

As a country filled with natural beauty, Costa Rica is finding ways to both protect and share this nature with others.

Its dense rainforest…

reaches out to the sea…

and together they create an atmosphere that is pura and simple.

Traveler Mia ventured to Costa Rica to get a taste of this natural pura’fection too. From morning surfs to afternoon hikes, she spent her days soaking up this pura'fying way of life.

She brought back fabric that reminded her of the clear blue ocean waters to share a piece of that pura & simple living with you too…

Here’s to finding pura'ty in the simple things and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders

PS.  Plus a few more fabrics from travelers who pura'sued a fabric finding journey of their own...

From witnessing the Niagara Falls (even if people say it's mainstream), to stopping in your tracks because the views are snow majestic, to taking a step (Que)bec in time while walking the old cobblestone streets.

It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?

Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders). 

More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).
