The Object

These decorative objects are made by artisans from native communities of the Amazon who specialize in obtaining resources in a non-predatory form. Produced from wood of varied Amazonian trees (Itaúba, Violeta, Saboarana, Marupá, Muirapiranga, Angelim Pedra) and extracted sustainably from uprooted trees or chosen ones already in the process of natural decomposition. The harvested logs are scraped, washed and dried in the sun and then made available for production.

The Production

Handcrafted in small artisan workshops that utilize basic wood working hand tools, and are finished off with a colorless sealer to preserve the natural color and beauty of the wood.

The Care

While this creative process guarantees the durability and quality of the piece, it is necessary to keep the product clean with specific wood preservation oils, and keep objects out of long-term direct sunlight, rain, wind, and snow to preserve them indefinitely.

The Sustainability Guarantee

The native river dwellers ("the ribeirinhos") live in total harmony with the Amazon. The commercialization of this product guarantees dignified income for all, bringing sustainable social development to the region and its surrounding communities.
