TRIBOS

which translates to english as tribes

Pendants made with products found in nature by natives of Nambiquaras village make each piece unique.

The pendants are unique pieces that can’t be repeated. They are handmade with products found in nature by the Nambiquaras native people. The available options must be consulted at the moment of purchase.

 

Solid wood is also unique, each with its shaft and its tone, so the images in this catalog are merely illustrative.

 

Limited edition of 08 pieces, numbered and with certificate of authenticity.

In search of my origin and of what the word "pleasure" means to me, I have been driven to nature. Pantanal, Amazon,  Atlantic Forest, fauna, flora and indigenous tribes…beauty pure and simple.  After sounds, forms, colors and scents.

The tribes collection was born, aiming at reinforcing our CULTURAL HERITAGE and praising Brazil. The collection is inspired by the indigenous graphics found in bowls carved by the native people of the Tapirapé tribe and on the work done by the native people of the Nambiquara Tribe, who use seeds of Sibipiruna, Inajá and Tucum coconut shell in crafting bandoliers and necklaces.

The tenderness of these works contrast with the force and sturdiness of solid Imbuya. As in life, a subtle equilibrium between FORCE AND DELICACY.

Value what we have is the meaning of "pleasure" for me. It is in the simple things of life, such as the color of the flowers, the scent of the soil sprayed by the rain, the sound of the wind moving the leafs, the song of the birds announcing a new day, the simple smile of a child.

Small details, which we sometime underestimate, are what really makes a difference.
