‘Indigenous art represents to the native people of the Amazon Basin an opportunity to preserve an integral livelihood and an alternative to industries that threaten to undermine these communities. The work of these artisans represents a connection to their ancestry that spans millenniums, with the power to create a dialogue between different cultures and break a cycle of prejudice and discrimination.
It’s the support, space, and heartfelt work of this growing network of independents which enables us to continually expand these dreams of social business experimentation. We vow to continue observing territorialism and reserve from working with the corporate world to ever strengthen our bond to the local markets and local initiatives.’ — Incausa
