AGUA

Our items are fair-trade and we use natural, biodegradable materials that have been harvested in a sustainable manner. Our two chief aims are environmental preservation and giving talented but disadvantaged artisans an opportunity to participate in a leveled global market.

The dream catcher pendant was hand stitched on a hand carved shell of a dried Totumo Gourd (approximately 1.9''or 5cm diameter). Medium size seeds are called "Bombona" and the small seeds are "acai" seeds. The middle part on the pendant is an Acai seed.

Maximum length: approximately 21.6 inches (55 cm). Measurements taken when the necklace is closed including all seeds.

Matching earrings are included at no additional cost. Length: Approximately 7 cm (2.75 inches).

Each piece is one of a kind. Please note that size, shape and shade of each bead may vary and will be slightly different from what is shown in the photo.

DREAM CATCHER

"Dream-catcher", hung above the bed, is then used as a charm to protect sleeping children from nightmares. The Ojibwa believe that a dreamcatcher filters a person's dreams. According to Terri J. Andrews in the article "Legend of the Dream Catcher," about the Ojibwa nation in the magazine World & I, Nov. 1998 page 204, "Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through . . . Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day." "It's recommended to hang the dream catcher above someone sleeping to guard against bad dreams. Good dreams pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper." Another legend "Good dreams pass through the center hole to the sleeping person. The bad dreams are trapped in the web, where they perish in the light of dawn."

TOTUMO is the fruit of the tree of the same name that grows in Central America and the Colombian Amazon. Its fruit has a strong round or extended crust that becomes hardened when it is mature. The ripe fruits once dry and clean inside, are used as containers (totumas) to hold water or liquids. During the pre-Columbian time the natives, Mocans, who inhabited the centre and the south of the Atlantic province (department) used the crust of totumo to make canteens called Totumas in which they stored milk and water.

Colombian artisans cut, dry, clean, dye, polish and engrave the fruits to make beautiful One of a kind pendants, earrings and various handcrafts.

Aa or Acai pronounced [asai], /ah-sah-EE or ah-shi-ee is a fast growing palm which contains eight species that are native to Central and South America. These palms grow mainly in swamps. The fruit, a small, round, black-purple drupe about 1 inch (25 mm) in diameter, similar in appearance and size to a grape but with less pulp, is produced in branched panicles of 700 to 900 fruits. Two crops of fruit are produced each year. The fruit has a single large seed about 0.250.40 inches (710 mm) in diameter. The exocarp of the ripe fruits is a deep purple color, or green, depending on the kind of aa and its maturity. The mesocarp is pulpy and thin, with a consistent thickness of 1 mm or less. It surrounds the voluminous and hard endocarp, which contains a seed with a diminutive embryo and abundant endosperm. The seed makes up about 80% of the fruit. Taken from Wikipedia.
