Discover our Tucumã Natural Fibre Baskets, woven by skilled Amazonian women artisans – a perfect blend of tradition and eco-conscious artistry
Nestled along the banks of the Amazon River, artisans from the Tapajós-Arapiuns Extractive Reserve craft our Tucumã Natural Fibre Baskets. Passed down through generations, this intricate artistry involves weaving baskets, mandalas, bags, vases, and chests using resilient tucumã palm tree fibres. The distinctive geometric designs and vibrant colours are brought to life through a meticulous natural pigmentation process, sourced from Amazonian flowers and roots. As a result of the dedication and creativity of 55 artisans, predominantly women, from five different remote riverside communities, our Tucumã Natural Fiber Baskets not only reflect the region’s rich cultural heritage but also sustain the traditional practices of forest-dwelling peoples from the Amazon.
