San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua – As the sun sets across the Pacific Ocean, leaving only the silhouette of fishing boats in the distance, another perfect day comes to a close in the coastal town of San Juan del Sur. While this small community rests for the night, the very best the county of Nicaragua has to offer remains available to those seeking a piece of this special place.
HechoNica.com, an online storefront featuring a wide variety of handmade, Nicaraguan souvenirs--created by local artists--recently launched with an inventory as unique as the people who craft it. Stocked with beautiful and functional pottery, hammocks, jewelry, clothing for men and women, original paintings and ornamental sculpture, the store is truly one-of-a-kind.
A family-owned business located in San Juan del Sur, HechoNica.com was launched by an extraordinary American family captivated by the beauty and craftsmanship of local Nicaraguan artists. Each item in their inventory is an original work of art, made by craftsmen with whom the family has an established relationship. And, by connecting artists to a broader market, HechoNica.com is not only allowing others to experience the beauty of Nicaragua, but through their customers, are providing economic growth and opportunity to local communities fighting the daily impact of poverty. They do this by taking $1 from each sale, and returning it to the local community through investments in programs that counter poverty and chronic unemployment.
“On our first trip to this amazing environment, our family was instantly captivated by the beautiful pieces handcrafted by the local Nicaraguan artisans,” said Nicole. “We were so moved by the people and culture, we relocated from the US and began exploring ways to promote the treasures we discovered every day in our regular travels. We believe we’ve created a completely original shopping experience with a diverse selection of products. Nowhere else will someone find handmade rosewood ukuleles, custom pottery, and Cocobolo wood lidded bowl sets. We’re proud of the collection we’ve built, and are even more proud of what we’re doing to help these amazing artisans.”
They are proud to offer these one-of-a-kind, treasures to customers around the world seeking authentic Central American goods over mass-produced products. Online shoppers can rest easy knowing that their purchases are protected using the latest eCommerce features and technologies including an SSL Certificate with 256-bit encryption for secure online transactions.
Over the months to come, HechoNica.com will be expanding their collection to include personalized and customizable products such as engravings, carvings, and hand-stitched leather. These souvenirs will be unlike anything you’d ever find outside this exotic land. As part of their online growth, the company will begin featuring the stories and photos of the same artisans whose products grace their virtual shelves.
As HechoNica.com grows, the company plans expansion to a brick-and-mortar store in San Antonio, Texas. For more information about HechoNica.com, or their selection of handcrafted Nicaraguan souvenirs, contact Nicole at 210-876-4401 or via the company’s website at www.HechoNica.com
