Product Description

These unique pieces were created by designer Iuçana Mouco from the northern state of Amazonas. These bracelets come from her "Puã" collection which is a Tupi-Guarani (a Brazilian Indigenous tribe) word meaning "round". The colors in these pieces are significant because they are based on the colors of the indigenous tribal paintings that have been passed down from generation to generation. The red wooden color represents the "urucum" fruit found in the rainforest, black from the "genipabu" fruit and the off- white represents the skin color. The patterns are modeled after the tribal body drawings. You are truly wearing art when you put on any of these pieces from this collection.
