Simply put, this lifestyle brand stands for “pure life” as it is translated from Spanish, “Pura Vida.” It was founded by Paul Goodman and Griffin Thall in 2010. The brand is a representation of a slower way of life, it’s simple pleasures and living life to the fullest. 

The beautiful handmade beachy and boho style bracelets and jewelry are handmade with love and what started out as two artisans, Jorge and Joaquin, has now grown to over 800 artisans across Costa Rica, El Salvador, India and other parts of the world. Pura Vida now ensures a steady paycheck to help support the artisans and their families.
