Gitingas creates colorful, durable, water resistant beach and boat bags, kangaroo pouches and other accessories infused with photographic images of Costa Rica

Lisa Brown Martin is an artist and designer, she came to Costa Rica in 2011 and fell in love!
Always needing to create, she pulled out an old sewing machine a began making clothes and handbags
for the local boutiques. Still feeling artistically unfilled, Lisa met Rhonda Cardella,
and was immediately inspired by her photography.
 Rhonda began to spend more time in Costa Rica, she channeled her skills as a professional photographer and dove into capturing artistic interpretations of patterns and designs found in the natural surroundings in Guanacaste.
 When Lisa & Rhonda came up with the idea of combining their
artistic talents and skills, and Gitingas was born.
 Lisa & Rhonda create bags that are a perfect marriage of function and aesthetics utilizing natural imagery and local elements in their design. Whether you are headed to the beach, boat trip, yoga studio, or a casual night out, Gitingas bags help you to carry the things you need to the places you love... because every wanderer needs a bag!
