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.
Convertible Belt Bags
The first belt bag was created on the Montunas cattle ranch 15 years ago for carrying essentials while on horseback. Today, it has been adapted to suit a slightly less rustic setting. It features a removable double loop belt, and a separate strap that allows it to become a crossbody. It can also be worn as a clutch, making it the most versatile Montunas bag.
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.
