What are Keeps?
Keeps are what we call the products you can purchase on the site. We call them Keeps because we feel they hold the essence of the country where it’s made, their Makers and its people. We do not sell in a country any foreign products.
Our Keeps are chosen for their authenticity, quality and their level of involvement in the community. They are environmentally friendly and socially conscious and they all tell a beautiful story of dreams that come true.
Who are the Makers?
Makers are the local artisans and small companies that produce or create Keeps. They are our partners in Local Keeps since it’s through their passionate work that we are able to offer the Costa Rican experience to travelers and adventurers.
Makers are chosen because they represent their country and it’s values. We choose Makers that have sustainable businesses, that create jobs in their communities and that really love what they do!
Who am I helping when I purchase through Local Keeps? When purchasing Keeps you are not only making your travel experience more intense and authentic, but at the same time you are socially responsible by contributing with the development of small local artisans and producers, with the environment and with other social causes Local Keeps participates in.
What is a Kit?
A Kit is a collection of Keeps that belong to the same theme. We have kits for home decoration, for beach days, for kids, BBQ-ing and a lot of other themes.
Kits are curated and include the best products in each category which are bundled together.
