Prendas con Textiles Boruca

En el desarrollo de nuestras prendas participo la comunidad indígena de boruca dedicada al trabajo artesanal en este caso con los textiles realizados con técnicas y materiales tradicionales, logrando así una propagación de su propia herencia y una activación económica para este grupo de mujeres que realizo los textiles.

Al adquirir una de nuestras prendas usted colabora en preservar la identidad propia de Costa Rica.

“Las prendas autóctono no están sujetas a procesos industriales, por su naturaleza artesanal son piezas únicas que pueden presentar leves diferencias en su estructura y color”.

This fashion photography series was shot in 2007 on location,at the Organization for Tropical Studies reserve in Sarapiqui Costa Rica,called “La Selva”.
Model Rosaura Zamora is wearing pieces from the collection, “Autoctono”, which was the Universidad Creativa graduation project for Costarican fashion designer Alvaro Nuñez Salazar.
“The concept behind this beautiful collection was to create unique pieces that reflect our Costarican identity and roots.
The textiles that where used to create this collection where made by women from the Costarican indigenous community called Borucas, using traditional materials and techniques.”
