Glorious Golden Grass Loop Earrings

The beautiful capim dourado or 'golden grass' used in our Brazilian woven grass collections can be found growing in the Tocantins region of Brazil, where our artist partner, Erlane, lives. It is a protected resource, and its raw grasses cannot be exported. Only the finished grass products of the indigenous peoples of Brazil can be brought into your home--making these items unique and valuable. The indigenous people of Brazil have been crafting woven goods from this unique grass for many years. It is durable, flexible and lightweight, making it perfect for jewelry and basket making.  Pick up your unique, fair trade, hand-woven earring set today!

The Artist's Story: Erlane

Erlane's (pictured here with his children) woven golden grass items are bought for fair wages, thus providing a sustainable income for his family. Through his partnership with Brazil focused non-profit, Cross Trade (a partner organization of Jesus' Economy), he is able to begin the journey of lifting himself and those around him out of poverty through economic opportunity and empowerment.
