THE KANGO COLLECTION
The Kango Collection, sustainable beaded jewelry and accessories, is designed and handmade in partnership with Asociación Sukû artisans of the Cofán Community of Dureno in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Artisans pick kangopacho and chichao seeds and chambira leaves in the rainforest. The seeds are strung to be used later in accessory making. The chambira leaves are stripped into strands of fiber that they twist on their legs to create twine used to string jewelry and knit into other accessories.
