TOTUMO IS VERY HARD AND DURABLE, BUT IT IS NOT WATER RESISTANT. WATER WILL NOT DESTROY TOTUMO, BUT PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO WATER AND SUN MAY CAUSE THE COLOR TO FADE OR THE PIECE TO DAMAGE, BEND OR CHANGE ITS SHAPE.

TOTUMO or GOURD 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, Mocanás, 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.

Açaí or Acai pronounced [asa’i], /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 0.25–0.40 inches (7–10 mm) in diameter. The exocarp of the ripe fruits is a deep purple color, or green, depending on the kind of açaí 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.

The Acai pulp is used for consumption. Acai seeds are washed, cleaned and dried. A hole usually 2 mm in diameter is drilled, then the seeds are dyed in the desired color and finally polished. After having the materials ready, artisans put together unique and beautiful designs. These unique pieces are fairtrade by Pueblito.
