Gallo Pin® is a local Costa Rican brand launched in early 2018, just 8 months after an adventurous family trip to Europe in mid 2017. A trip where blending with the cities and different cultures was one of the daily goals, as well as going inside every possible local store to collect souvenirs, no matter how tiny they were. In fact, the smaller the souvenir the better, this way we could afford to fit it into our already tight backpacks!
While in Amsterdam, our last stop before finishing our 3-week adventure, we found an eye-catching local shop that sold the most endearing set of themed pins, setting off an immediate spark wondering: why aren’t there pins like this about Costa Rica?
Ideas and possible designs flooded our thoughts and conversations. 8 Months and 7 pins later, Gallo Pin® came to life as a brand of collectible souvenir pins with local Costa Rican designs. Each one of them is meant to tell a story, whether it’s a reminder of your recent trip to Costa Rica, or being a local who simply wants to wear a small icon from your beloved Country; we want to make products that connect with people and that illustrate what the real essence of Costa Rica is all about.
