Gato Negro is a Costa Rican brand of contemporary textile jewellery - ecomConnect Market

Gato Negro

Gato Negro is a Costa Rican contemporary textile jewellery brand inspired by artisanal techniques and the organic textures of upcycled materials. 


Working mainly with leather, wool, cotton and bronze, our artisans create a range of textile jewellery, from contemporary necklaces and rings to keychains. Each piece tells a story that brings customers closer to the Costa Rican identity, a true reflection of the wealth of our country.


Gato Negro admires Costa Rica’s rich artisanal heritage, the simplicity of their materials and the paradise in which they live. We believe in generating value chains with the people that work alongside us to bring sustainable designs that share the rich artisanal heritage of Costa Rica.

ITC project

Central America - Women and E-Commerce

The project, which is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the International Trade Centre (ITC) in collaboration with the Secretariat for Central American Economic Integration (SIECA) and national implementing partners, supports 200 women-led businesses from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama to export their handicrafts through e-commerce channels. Alongside work to improve product quality and design, the women-led businesses are trained and prepared to list on international online marketplaces such as Etsy and eBay, develop and optimize their own websites, use different digital marketing channels to generate traffic and sales, receive online payments, prepare orders for shipment and provide quality customer service.
