Arte Tropic

Artetropic, a collective of artisan associations in the coca growing region of Chimore, Bolivia, came together as part of an effort to fill the unemployment gap created as the country began eradicating coac crops. The group provides work for more than 600 families, and especially for woman, who typically earn half the pay of men. The artisans specialize in high quality and often whimsical products from a palm fiber know as jipijapa, (pronounced "hippy hoppa"), the wild palm used to make the famous "Panama Hats" worn in Casablanca, Using just the most pliable jipijapa leaves, which allows the plant to regenerate, they create wonderful bugs, flowers, and Christmas ornaments.

from Bolivia

Square Banana Boxes-Set of 3


These square banana boxes are a great item to use as a gift or storage box. Wouldn't it be nice to give a gift with a little style.

This trunk regeneration makes bananas a wonderful natural resource. In the proper management of banana plants, the trunks are cut down after each harvest and buried near the live root as a sort of compost. This is when people take the bark and use it for crafts.
