Product Description

These pieces are appreciated around the world for the unique beauty and exotic origin. The pattern of the sieve was inspired by the skin of the boa constrictor, a snake that can reach up to four meters long and is native to various regions of Brazil. This sieve was made with Cauaçu (Calathea lutea), a common plant and herb in the Amazon region, that reaches up to 5 meters (over sixteen feet) in length.

The artisans use the stem fibers to weave items such as baskets, and other useful household products. The pieces follow a style created by a group of artisan women called Teçumê D'Amazonia, inhabitants of the Amana Indigenous Reserve.

The Amana reserve, along with neighboring reserves, Mamirauá and Jau National Park, compose the basin of the Japura, Black and Middle Solimões rivers, in the state of Amazonas.These reserves form the largest conserved indigenous area in Brazil. The area is vast and has virtually no contact with the outside world.
