Founder: Alina Suárez Cowley Location: Heredia, Costa Rica Founded in 2008
Alina and her husband came from Cuba, where they had a shoe store. Once in Costa Rica they decided to venture into a less competitive market and with Alina´s knack for drawing and painting, they both started CAURI.AS.
Alina´s love for pre-columbine art and for nature has led her to design indigenous inspired creations. She uses wood, leather and metal, most times leftovers from other businesses. She is very proud that her jewelry has reached several important museums in San Jose and that it represents CAURI.AS philosophy for sustainability and consciousness.
