TOTUMO is the fruit of the tree of the same name that grows in Colombia. 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, Mocanás, who inhabited the centre and the south of the Atlantic province (departamento) used the crust of Totumo to make canteens (totumas) in which they stored milk and water. The pulp of the totumo is used to feed the cattle and make natural remedies. Artisans clean, dry, cut, dye, polish and engrave the fruit to make beautiful One of a kind bracelets, pendants, earrings, necklaces and various handcrafts.
