Founded in San Juan, Puerto Rico, ROGATIVE was inspired by my own travels and experiences living outside of Puerto Rico, including that strong feeling that tugs at your heart when you are away from home.
ROGATIVE comes from the beautiful bronze statue by Lindsay Daen, La Rogativa. A sculpture that pays tribute to efforts of the townspeople, who joined forces and stopped the 1797 invasion attempt. 200+ years later, La Rogativa still exemplifies the true spirit of Puerto Ricans.
We have joined forces with local artists and craftsman and are committed to rebuilding the local economy. Additionally, we donate 5% of our proceeds to the Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico. They help break the cycle of poverty in the Island by serving over fifteen thousand youth every year.
Our designs tell a story and all of our products pay tribute to the iconic elements of the Island's artistry. This way, we can carry more of Puerto Rico with us, wherever life may lead us.
