    Visited the Boruca people today in central Costa Rica today. Easy ~1hr drive from Ojochal, with only the last ~25min requiring 4WD. They showed us how they make color dyes from different leaves in the jungle to make paint and yarn, and of course, MASKS!! We saw different people carving the traditional masks, and walked throughout the village. Such an amazing culture! So so glad we made the journey. We even ended up with two beautiful masks!

    The Gallery is rockin', keeping the carvers carving as fast as they can, and the weavers weaving. February sales 51 masks and 41 woven items. Thank you all, and please pass the word about Boruca.

    Boruca Gallery Gift Shop had a fantastic month of February, with sales soaring at 51 masks sold and 41 woven pieces. Our stock changes all the time, as fast as we sell we buy more and more from the village. The carvers cannot keep up. Putting more carvers to work !!!
