Golden Capim is a rare and beautiful type of vegetation that can be found in the heart of Brazil in the area of Jalapao, which is located in the countryside of Tocantins state. Artwork using the Capim originated in a village called Mumbuca, made by slaves remaining from the ancient quilombos.
The Golden Capim grows from April until June and it can only be harvested during the months of October and November, respecting the plant’s cycle.
Now Alex Silva’s passion for Brazilian authenticity, has brought a fantastic collection of Golden Capim Jewellery. To see them, to try them and buy them please come to our stalls at the Portobello Market. And please remember we are there only on Saturday.
