Natural is Beautiful

Pura Vida is a saying used by locals in my adopted home of Costa Rica that means ‘pure life’. It was the pura vida natural lifestyle that inspired me to create simple, super-soft, eco-friendly baby carriers that give you the freedom and comfort to wear your baby anywhere and everywhere.
