Handmade by the Xavante in the Amazon Basin, Brazil. Brought to us by Incausa.
Incausa collaborates with artisans, villages, and associations of eight different native ethnicities in the Amazon. Acting as a non-profit patron, subsidizing logistics and production. And developing sustainable retail and wholesale market-placements.
‘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.’
