GOLDEN GRASS

Golden grass (Capim dourado) is a unique grass, with a white flower on a golden stalk. It is found in the Jalapao region in Brazil, in the state of Tocantins in the heart of Brazil. When the stalks of the plant reach maturity and become golden in colour, they are then harvested. This takes place between September and November only in order to protect the grass, because the Brazilians take great care in preserving their heritage. The people living in the villages near to the territory weave the plant using the traditional methods. A small French company has decided to enhance this magnificent plant.

GOLDEN GRASS

The Legend

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.

 

Philosophy and values

The small French company that imports this golden grass works hand in hand with the local craftspeople, and insists on contributing to the preservation and development of this exceptional craft.  It is committed to the four following fundamental points:

    - Ethical respect

    - Regulatory respect

     - Commercial respect

     - Esthetic respect

It is thus committed to the pursuit of respectful relationships with local craftspeople and their working conditions.  Exportation norms are also complied with thanks to the absence of toxic metals in the materials used for clasps, that are guaranteed cadmium, nickel and lead free.  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.
