Murumuru is a native palm tree of the Amazon. Its seeds are used for handicrafts and cosmetics. Here it adorns the point of the kuripe. The rest was made using bamboo and resin.
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 Tete 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.
