COCONUT - The coconut palm may reach to 100 feet or more. The leaves are very large, up to 18 feet long, with lanceolate leaflets up to 3 feet long. The fruits are produced in clusters near the growing tip. They vary in shape, but are generally near globose to oblong, up to a foot or more in length. The nut is encased in a thick, fibrous husk, which is persistent and must be cut away to expose the nut. The shell is very hard and woody, near 0.25 inch thick.
After a long process of filling with different file thickness, the coconut turn into a one of a kind craft.
BAMBOO - There are more than 1400 species of bamboo. In the Americas there are around 290 different species. Some are as short as one foot (30 cm) in height while others can grow to hundred times that size. The root structures of bamboo plants vary and they are often scientifically classified by root type. Many different climates support bamboo, although it is commonly associated with the tropics. In Colombia and Ecuador Bamboo prospers in fertile regions up to 2,000 meters (7,000 feet) above sea level. We know little of how many Bamboo species grow in Columbia. However, Guadua is well known and has 2 popular names - "Guadua macana or Guadua macha."
CHIRILLA - "One of the most commonly used beads in natural seed jewelry comes from a beautiful wildflower of the Caribbean region and tropical America. It is commonly called "Indian shot" and it belongs to the mostly tropical, monocotyledonous Canna Family (Cannaceae). This lovely wildflower is common along roadsides and open fields throughout the West Indies and Lesser Antilles. The spherical black seeds of Indian shot are so hard and perfectly round that they resemble oversized BB's or buckshot from a shotgun shell. In fact, they are so dense that they readily sink in water. Under a hand lens the seeds are minutely-pitted, like the surface of pocked metal. The seeds are called "Indian shot" because of their superficial resemblance to lead shot ammunition of the 18th and 19th centuries."
