We specialize in unique jewellery & handbags all hand made by small communities in Brazil using sustainable materials sourced in the local area.
Our Brazilian made sustainable & eco-friendly unique jewellery & handbags are all hand made by small communities in Brazil using sustainable materials sourced in the local area, using grass, leaves and stones.
In the Amazon region, these trees grow in wet or flooded areas and in the cerrado (another Brazilian biome, like a tropical savanna), in lowland and swamp lands.
From this tree everything is taken advantage of: the leaves for handicrafts, the pulp, called “wine” form sweet juices, and is highly appreciated in the region.
With the seed is produced buttons, semi-jewels and even jewellery (with silver or gold).
Buriti is helping to boost small local communities in Brazil by creating a new source of jobs, and ensuring that forests and trees are worth more standing than cut.
