Houndstooth Glasses Case

$ 13.00

Handmade in Brazil to promote fair trade as a holistic approach making it not only about paying a fair wage, but also building capacity, committing to work with marginalized people who need these opportunities the most, being good stewards of the environment, respecting cultural traditions, working collaboratively and engaging the producers in the decision-making process and developing long-term relationships among other things.
Handwoven with eco-friendly buriti palm fiber responsibly harvested in the proper season, so the plants aren’t damaged or destroyed and continue to yield biruti over the course of years. With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.

For centuries before the European occupation of Brazil, native tribes occupied its riverbeds, jungles and coastal stretches. These ones were semi-nomadic, living off the land and traveling as and when necessary in search of food, safety and shelter. Despite this lack of contact with an outside world, these native people established their own cultures, customs and art forms, ranging from song and dance to religion, art and cuisine.
