the perfect summer weekend means…

…time to relax and celebrate.
Time to have fun!

This is summer and we all deserve a break and a chance to enjoy the beautiful blue sky! Time go wild and have fun with friends and loved ones.

Once, I heard that life is a constant waiting game. And, that is so true – we are always waiting for something: a promotion, a new car, Mr right, a dream holiday, try on a vibrant summer block colour, a fantastic unique piece of jewellery, a new house, relocation, the new season, a baby, an award…and so on. It is a truly endless list for all of us!

caipora jewellery

… through nature & inspiration!

 guest post

Meanwhile nature met and got together with art, fashion and technology.

In its playful and poetic form, some projects came to light: delicate lace made of strawberry roots, strong textile fibers of spider silk from Madagascar and a Japanese ancestral fabric fujifu, made from the fiber lying under the bark of the branch of the wisteria, the flourished tree-creeper.
She got fascinated by the new designs, such as the origami-like dress, which blurs the boundaries between 2D and 3D.  Created by the French fashion designer Léa Peckre and the German textile designer Elisa Strozyk, this dress is made of laser cut triangular wood pieces attached to a textile base.

She got indulged by the Micro’be’  red wine dress, which is made by allowing microbes to ferment and “grow” into fabric that on the surface, color and texture are given.

She left Futurotextiles exhibition, that takes place in Paris, with her predictions confirmed: the future of fashion is in the combined development of the new textile technologiesbiodesign.

indigenous people day…

 

…wake up to the Indian who is within you

 

Today Brazil celebrates the The National Indian Festival, which is considered the largest indigenous cultural event in the world.

 

The festival is seen as an opportunity to learn about Brazilian indigenous peoples, since traveling to most tribal areas and reservations in Brazil is restricted and must be authorized by FUNAI, the National Indian Foundation.

 

Brazil turned 500 in 2000 and unfortunately still ignores the immense diversity of the Indigenous peoples living in its territory. It is estimated that, at the time the Europeans first arrived, there were more than 1,000 denominations, with a total of between 2 and 4 million people. Today they are  238 peoples , speaking more than 180 different languages and adding up to 896.917  individuals (IBGE, 2010).[read more]

 

Like any other human group, Indigenous people civilization results from the history of relationships among themselves, between them and the environment.

For Caipora, talking about the Indigenous people means talking about a very special family.  A family with a solid culture that sometimes can be surprisingly similar, such as in behaviour and general needs.
