Tepi – Animal Kingdom
We baptized this series of tepis from the Tetê Pawã artes and crafts studio Animal Kingdom. They are all original one off pieces. Each one has different or a different combination of totem animals from the Brazilian rainforest and indigenous medicine culture. The tepis are made from bambu with a bone mouthpiece for pressure, durability and hygiene. The tepi is all decorated with indigenous tribal symbols or kenê burned with pyrography into the bambu. Have a look through the models and see which one resonates most with you.
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.
