About Us

As a family-owned business, we have offered for more than 20 years now, the most exclusive collection of COSTA RICAN artwork, handicrafts, jewelry and coffee.
Thanks to the support and long-lasting relationships of our clients, our stores known as “CONGO”, have become a meeting place for those who want to share our COSTA RICAN culture and art.

Throughout the years of experience in this business, we have brought together a selected group of artists and artisans that want to reflect the nature and idiosyncrasies of our peace-loving country through their finest art and crafts.

We seek to share our artists and artisans’ inspiration and artistic gift, as they are able to transform a piece of exotic wood from a fallen tree to an innovative and unique hand-made piece of art.

We also seek to provide economic opportunities to artisans that want to preserve their culture and traditions.  The Boruca Reserve, for example, is one of the Indian tribes that was not expelled from their original lands by the Spanish colonists.  Women of the tribe use their knowledge and technique to produce weaves, whereas men carve colorful balsa-wood masks. Selling their crafts is their main income.

We offer a wide variety of carefully selected products made of different materials, such as:

  • Costa Rican exotic woods (rosewood, sapwood, tigerwood, Pejibaye palm, others)
  • Colorful hand-painted ceramics
  • Oil and acrylic paintings
  • Stained glass
  • Semiprecious stones and silver jewelry
  • Green and other recycled materials
  • Gourmet coffee, chocolates

and much more.
