and behind these handmade beauties, is a story, a great story….
Two friends, on a collage break in Costa Rica, notice a man named Jorge peddling bracelets on the streets. They believed the handmade, colourful bracelets seemed to capture the essence of their journey. They soon ask Jorge if he could make 400 bracelets for them to take back to the states and within a matter of weeks, they became great friends.
When they first met Jorge, he was living in a single room, with 3 beds and several family members. Soon after arriving back to the states, they were able to give him enough business to live comfortably in a house and have his amigos work with him!
Jorge went from selling 2-5 bracelets a week to upwards of 15000 a week! The relationship has since blossomed into a full- fledged business.
