Category: | Published on: May 16, 2019 | By Omaily Lucas

If one should stereotype a trip to the Caribbean, then stores and stalls with tropical knick-knack would probably be part of the description. On Curaçao however, we’ve slowly veered away from the stereotypical to make room for unique and locally made Curaçao souvenirs. Most are handcrafted by creative local souls on this beautiful island. Their brand represents and illustrates the heart and vibrant spirit of Curaçao in its truest form. Here are 5 local brands that make amazing Curaçao souvenirs that you will love to bring home as a gift for a loved one or a keepsake.

 

Limpi

As an island that is closely connected to the sea, being kind to our surrounding is of prime importance. Limpi, a brand founded by two young eco-conscious creative entrepreneurs, have found a way to tackle plastic pollution and offer visitors of Curaçao a beautiful keepsake. They create beautiful Curaçao souvenirs made from recycled plastic. Choose between their popular keychains in the form of sea creatures or timeless coasters in colorful Caribbean colors. Whatever one you take home, you’re sure you choose a Curaçao souvenir with a story.

Kokolishi

You’ve seen the charming Dutch-colonial houses, the vibrant colors that characterized the island, and the mystical underwater world.
