We visited an interesting shop that captured our attention for its graphic design. It tries to note on many of its little offered gifts, things that are very typical from Costa Rica. They are “Homeland Effect”.
Their main desire was to undertake a business to get something positive, mixed with the homeland’s passion. They saw the need to create a fostering product about the Costa Rican identity within a modern design. In that time, they initiated their main products: We were told by the founders that they thought about the stickers made with Costa Rican-related-designs.
Once you go into the store, the first things that you would like best are the modern pillows with lining and the wrapped water bottles. Those products are made with flora, fauna, and Costa Rican beaches designs. These products’ designs are original and they are fully focused on Costa Rica’s culture.
The fabric used by them to make these beautiful pillows is jute because it symbolizes the coffee bags. In this way, we try to reinforce the Costa Rican popularity. All those pillows have a zipper and we can take out the stuffing to wash them well. They are mixed with damask and created with thermoadhesive material which is more washing and using resistant.
The shop is located in San Pedro, one can send these products to many parts of the world at Costa Rica’s Post Office. More information: www.instagram.com/efectopatriacr
