REPUBLICANA WAS LAUNCHED IN 2015 BY FOUNDER & DESIGNER, DANIELA RODRIGUEZ, WITH A CLEAR VISION TO BUILD A SUSTAINABLE FASHION LINE, COMMITED TO FAIR- TRADE AND MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE PLANET.
Republicana is a Costa Rican resort wear label that celebrates an escape f rom the ordinary. Behind every collection lies an adventurous new journey, inspired from the sun-chasing boho woman, exotic faraway destinations, and our love for nature. The result, a collection of pieces that will make each woman feel instantly confident and beautiful. Dedicated to a young women of spirit that isn’t afraid of color.
Each piece is carefully designed and handcrafted by local artisans in Costa Rica. Our products are infused with a sense of beauty, sensuality and effortlessly stylish, that will bring the happiness of the tropics into your everyday life.
Our locally sourced acrylic, used in our accessories, is a result of recycling practices. We collect the acrylic waste from local companies that they no longer need and we enable reusing or repairing, which results in fewer materials entering the waste stream. Reduction and reuse are the most effective ways for protecting the environment.
Every stage of the fashion industry’s supply chain is energy-intensive. Transforming the fashion sector to run on renewable energy is vital for a more sustainable society. Manufacturing in Costa Rica means that at least 98% of our electricity is produced by renewable resources, making our production more efficient.
We employ local artisans with a high level of quality and expertise in their particular craft. We strive to lift these artisans and their families out of poverty by providing employment with a fair wage, good working conditions, and no gender or racial discrimination.
Without them, these products and the entire concept of Republicana could not exist.
