Product Description

This bag was made by the Apalai Indians, who inhabit Amapá, a state that is located in the most extreme point of Brazil and whose territory is entirely located in the Amazon Forest. Amapá was the first Brazilian state to have all its indigenous lands demarcated. In its 140,276 km ² of area, we find 49 villages, of diverse ethnic groups, like Apalaí, Galibi, Karipuna, Kaxuyana, Palikur, Tiriyó, Waiãpi and Wayana, among others.

Each indigenous village has its own aesthetic pattern used on utilitarian objects such as baskets, nets, ornaments and weapons. The main feature of the objects made by the Apalai are the complex geometric designs whose meanings are known only by the group.

The material used to make this bag is the morototo (Schefflera morototoni) seed, a large tree - it can reach 30m in height and its trunk has a diameter of up to 90 cm - native to all of South America.
