Featuring alternate bands of shimmering natural fiber and twisted black cotton, this adjustable bracelet can easily go from day to night. The meticulously coiled and thread-wrapped material is Capim Dourado, or Golden Grass. True to its name, the fine grass has a golden sheen that truly looks like a fine metal and is similarly rare, growing only in the remote northeastern Jalapão region of Tocatins, Brazil.

 

2.5" adjustable diameter; .75" wide

Golden Grass and black cotton

Nickel-free fittings

Handmade in Tocantins, Brazil

Golden Grass

 

This is special because...

Since its discovery by runaway slaves from the northeastern state of Bahia more than a century ago, Golden Grass grass - now on the verge of extinction -  has been utilized to make all manner of utilitarian and ornamental goods. In recent years, to protect the species and the tiny communities whose livelihood depend on it, stringent regulations have been enacted, permitting only a very narrow, sustainable harvest season.
