Founder: Mélida Luconi
Location: Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste
Founded in 2017
Mélida had to stay at home from work while she was sick. To pass time she learned how to stitch through Youtube videos. She started making purses that her friends loved and decided to give business a try. She was teaching at hotels and realized that when High Season tourism came about, her lessons often got cancelled because staff was so busy with guests. She now had time to spare and a new trade to show off. Hence, Stitch by Stitch was born!
Stitch by Stitch uses fabric and thread that were discarded at textile factories in Europe. It uses sustainable materials only. The company seeks to have an eco-friendly and responsible creation process and envisions growing through hiring women head of households in rural areas.
