Tico Art is a not-for-profit Artistic Collaborative of Americans and Costa Ricans handcrafting unique woodcrafts from eco-friendly hardwoods.
The native people of Costa Rica are referred as Ticos and are among the friendliest people in the Americas. They are also a nation of artistic talent, living in an environment of incredible beauty.
Visiting Costa Rica a decade ago, we were awestruck by the spirit of the Ticos, the beauty of the country and the unique and interesting crafts. Costa Rica is rich in hardwood forests. An array of small home-based factories produce amazing puzzle boxes, bowls, jewelry boxes and vases from farm-grown hardwoods. Over the last five years two Tico and three American families have partnered to create what we call "un negocio espiritual", a Spiritual Business named Tico Art, LLC
Tico Art is an American/Costa Rican cooperative partnership created to share the spirit and beauty of the Ticos and their country with the rest of the world. Ticos and Americans work side by side designing and producing handcrafted decorative and functional items from Central American farm grown hardwoods. These are finished and channeled through Tico Art's United States facilities.
Our American associates and Costa Rican partners work in both countries to create our cross-cultural design concepts. Every individual contributes to the body of art while focusing on their own area of specialty.
