Celebrated most of all in Brazil, Amazon Day was established in 1850 to mark the creation of the Province of Amazonas, in the north of the country. The date generates awareness of the rainforest’s protection and preservation.
With its vast area of 6.7 million square kilometres, five million of which are covered by forest, the Amazon today is one of humanity’s most precious natural heritages. Spread out over 60% of Brazil’s total land surface, the rainforest also extends to Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Suriname, Venezuela and French Guyana.
An estimated 33 million people inhabit the Amazon basin, including many indigenous people that resisted the extermination perpetrated since the colonization. Also, the region is the target of constant exploration, fires and deforestation, and urges for protection.
To make you feel more connected to such an important part of our global ecosystem, our Namata Collection celebrates the Amazon heritage. By using natural resources and being inspired by local techniques for the use of the materials, the products featured by Ornamental are eco-friendly, handmade and offer an unique touch to your style.
Check out some inspiration for your jewellery collection:
