Brazilartsandcrafts.com is a family-run company, our goal is to help generate jobs for communities who rely on their arts and crafts as a main source of income and at the same time ensuring that local knowledge and traditions are passed on to the next generation and not lost in time, be it indigenous or popular art.

Our priority is to help Brazilian artisans to promote their amazing eco-exotic arts and crafts worldwide. These talented artisans come from very remote areas with poor infrastructure; they sell their work locally and have no organized outlets. We aim to establish better structures with representatives from indigenous groups and artisan communities by providing them with an outlet to sell and promote their work worldwide.

Our products have been carefully selected to help generate jobs to local communities working in a sustainable way to produce quality products, add to this the fact that our products represents an investment in sustainability not just of the Amazon Rainforest itself, but also the support of the indigenous people, artisan communities and their way of life.

We are also donating 5% of all online sales through our website to Survival a Non-profit organisation working for tribal peoples’ rights worldwide.

We thank you for your support.
