These structured shapes were inspired by the hanging planters and pots used at the Montunas Orchid House. Nestled in the mountains around San Jose, the Orchid house is home to a multitude of orchids native to Costa Rica. Each shape has its root in the world of Orquideas. Our classic shape, the Guaria, has a practical internal pouch and a silk scarf handle that can be worn two ways.
small leather bags
The first leather bag was created on the Montunas cattle ranch 15 years ago for carrying essentials while on horseback. Today, our bags have evolved to suit a slightly less rustic setting. Retaining the versatility and practicality of the first bags, our new leather shapes are a great companion - whether in the city or during a getaway. The removable silk scarf handle can be worn two ways, and the satin pouch inside hides and protects your belongings.
Montunas means women from the mountains. Our mother, the original Montuna, grew up on a coffee plantation in Costa Rica. Today, our hearts lie between the rainforests of Costa Rica and the streets of London. These are our two homes, our two halves. Our roots are wild and untamed. Our creations are elegant and timeless.
