BARÉ ARTISANS

A group of 15 families from the Baré ethnicity come together to weave mats, baskets, bags and other objects from arumã strips. Arumã is a plant that thrives in marshy areas along riverbanks and streams. The indigenous Baré people residing in the upper Rio Negro region have passed down their knowledge of handling and weaving arumã through generations.


Once the arumā fiber is harvested, they are carefully washed, and some are scraped to enhance their ability to absorb reddish and black dyes. These dyes are predominantly obtained from guava, urucum, and ingá xixica. Afterward, the splints are cut into smaller pieces and skillfully braided by the artisans, who have mastered around 50 different weaving techniques.


Novo Airão is located approximately 180 km from Manaus, in a region that grants access to two of the most significant national parks in the Amazon: Anavilhanas National Park, renowned as the world's second-largest river archipelago with around 400 islands, and Jaú National Park, the second largest national park in Brazil. Novo Airão is home to a diverse array of wildlife, including red and gray dolphins, manatees, and Sumaúmas, towering Amazon trees that can reach up to 40 meters in height and boast colossal roots. This enchanting location has earned the nickname Ecological Paradise.
