Owner description: This quaint and welcoming boutique offers contemporary nature inspired creations: -Made in Costa Rica -On Costa Rica cotton Each piece is unique and reflects the artisanal handicraft approach of Francesca. For the past 12 years, she has delighted tourists and locals alike with her home collection of pillows, table runners and placemats and her colorful bags of all size and shapes. Featuring hand painted butterflies, dragonflies, frogs, birds, flowers and tropical leaves, her creations pay tribute to the exquisite surrounding fauna and flora: a distinctive memento of your travels to Costa Rica and a great alternative to the "made elsewhere" souvenirs. Shop with confidence, each piece is guaranteed WASHABLE and LOVABLE. We speak Spanish, English and French.

“Great spot to shop”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Great spot to shop if you want authentic local souvenirs that are unique. Made locally, money goes to support the actual people in the community, and my family and friends loved the items as gifts.

“Great souvenirs that are not like all the others”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

This little store does hand painted tropical images on fabrics. There are pillows, aprons, messenger bags, table runners, purses, lamps, make-up bags and more. The leaves are stamped from actual leaves and the images are then hand painted. All the goods are made by local seamstresses in the community. The fabrics are naturally died, and the painting is guaranteed washable. And the prices absolutely cannot be beat! Definitely check it out!
