Kuripe – Marajá Mariri
Marajá is sometimes called black bamboo although it actually is from the family of palm trees. Its bark is full of spines and it is quite hard to find in the forest. It is harder than bambu and as such gives more pressure to your application and is more durable. Because of the difficulty of finding the material they are limited edition and we only have them when the maker happens to receive or find some.
This model is finely decorated with resin in tribal designs and finished off with a small slice of caapi vine, also called mariri by some adepts.
There may be slight varieties from batch to batch since this is a hand crafted product.
This model was made by our handicrafts experts at the Tetê Pawã arts and crafts studio. They are located in the upper Juruá region of Marechal Thaumaturgo municipality, way up on the Amazon. The only way to get there is a two day boat journey or with a four seater airplane. They have been our close partners since 2014, always delivering state of the art handicrafts and their excellent Kuntanawa Rapés.
