Escape to the rainforest with Rae Ritchie’s Pura Vida. This new collection embodies the sun, fun and lushness of our world’s most colorful habitat.
Pura Vida translates to “pure life”, a Costa Rican ethos of optimism that celebrates simplicity and appreciation for each day.
The collection starts shipping this month!
A word from Rae about Pura Vida:
// Two years ago, right before I started working with Dear Stella, I was fortunate enough to travel to Costa Rica with my husband, sister and brother-in-law. The lushness of the jungle and the extreme kindness of the locals went beyond my wildest dreams.
One day in particular, we hiked in a hanging bridge nature preserve near the Arenal Volcano. I had never been to a place where literally every inch was teaming with beautiful, colorful life. My sister and I kept looking at each other thinking “is this real?” We even saw new animals we didn’t know existed, like the coati, a racoon-like diurnal animal (many a close encounter were had, I might add!). Many sightings of the quieter, friendlier sloth were also enjoyed. There was so much inspiration within this week-long stay that will always be with me. I have been building this collection in my head for quite some time, and am excited to finally share it with the world! //
