Legend has it that in the 15th century, the last Inca king, Atahualpa, had to hide the Inca treasure in a secret place, on account of the Spanish conquest of South America that was raging at that time.
Atahualpa asked for his treasure to be transformed into gold powder and entrusted to the wind god who, with one puff, sent it towards a little-known plain of Brazil and returned it to the mother earth, the Pachamama. Thus a unique plant was brought into being in Amazonia.

The commitment of this small company extends to quality control that respects the manufacture of the products. The jewellery is made under the supervision of local craftspeople.
