LatinaMeetup Miami Sponsor: Anda Pa’l

I’ve told you how much I love curating Latina made products for our LatinaMeetup goody bags.

Guess what arrived this past week?

Goody bag items from Anda Pa’l for #LatinaMeetup Miami!

Anda Pa’l zipper pouch

The term “I don’t give a cucumber” is an exact translation of a Spanish term, “No me importa un pepino”. It’s funny due to the fact that the exact translation is ridiculous and doesn’t make sense. It really means, “I could care less”, but in  silly way.

Frankly, most people who are Hispanic/Latino don’t really know where the term comes from, but it makes you giggle in either language.

Anda Pa’l Logo

Anda Pa’l’s mission is to help Puerto Ricans feel connected to home no matter where they are. Founded in 2015 by a San Juan native living in Seattle, WA, Anda Pa’l has become known for their fun, witty bags inspired by nostalgia for life in the Caribbean. Each unique piece is printed by hand and made from a thick, lush canvas fabric that can hold almost anything (maybe even some tostones). Anda Pa’l bags have been featured on NBC, Buzzfeed, Mitú and Remezcla. They’re the perfect accessory for anyone who wants to carry a bit of Puerto Rico with them.

    These bags sound AMAZING and I have to admit to a huge weakness for fun bags like these! Can they be purchased online?

    I actually like that saying – gonna have to use it. In this day and age people tend to be a bit more abrasive than they need to be. Why not “make a funny”.
