Founder: Rosa Evelia Montenegro
Location: San José, Costa Rica
Founded in 2000
When Rosa had an accident and hurt her back, she had to stop working and look for other ways to make ends meet. She started using the technique she had learned from her mother and grandmother to crochet, and Joyeria Frutal was born!
Joyeria Frutal creates jewelry and other accessories out of recycled material, mainly fruit they mostly collect from leftovers at Green Markets. The brand has been able to employ local women, not only strengthening Costa Rica environmental mindset but also her community.
