Founder: Lina Rodríguez Vargas
Location: Moravia, Costa Rica
Founded in 2009
Lina was studying Fashion design and started making stuffed animals and bags for friends and family. She got so much praise for her work that what started as a hobby, became a full time job.
The company uses their Costa Rican nature and local folklore inspired products as a vehicle for their creativity but also as a message of inclusivity, equality and acceptance of self and others. Their bags, toys and other many products, do not follow a standard aesthetic found in mass products and stores, but rather showcase a very different type of beauty: a beauty that breaks stereotypes.
Their products are made in what they call their Monster and Experiment Shop and they use every single leftover fabric and button to reduce environmental impact.
