Caipora Ethical Fashion Jewellery - Consciously Gorgeous
by Deborah Miarkowska
As seen in Brazilian Vogue, September 2009, Caipora’s products have a cosmopolitan flavour that comes from Brazil’s colourful history, with native Indians, Europeans and Africans being the base of the country’s culture.

Throughout the centuries, Brazil has warmly welcomed people from all continents, transforming its character and culture into a unique environment, full of different talents, creative ideas and professionals, who have been inspired and transformed by its multicultural mix, typical of the country.
Caipora has chosen to work with Brazilian Communities in Pará, Belém, to produce our fabulously gorgeous items, supporting the sustainability of endangered areas and increasing the social condition of its communities.
Brazil is rich in natural resources and famous for the huge variety of raw materials that cannot be found elsewhere. Their products are handcrafted, made of carefully selected materials and are largely sourced by riverside communities, who use their native knowledge to collect them in a sustainable manner, recycling wherever possible.
This method of working allows us to utilise raw materials, like un-germinated seeds, natural fibres, bone, horn, coconut, bamboo, mother-of-pearl shells, reclaimed wood and leather, being all surplus to Mother Nature’s requirements, and therefore the local eco system is left unharmed.
Zel Albuquerque, Founder & CEO behind Caipora UK, says: “The unique style of our products and the ever growing reputation is already spreading the word around the world, where local stores, consumers, fashion editors and celebrities are making a difference and, being consciously gorgeous clients!”.
Caipora’s ecological production process
Caipora’s professional artisans support the chosen designer throughout the creative process, optmising sustainability in all their products and also enabling individual items to have the designer twist aspect. This maintains Caipora’s allure and multicultural charm. After the extensive selection of raw materials, our artisans begin a meticulous production process, entirely by hand, to create each unique ecological and sustainable piece of jewellery.
During this process, everything is crafted. The human being is the main focus and the production is governed by basic values, such as care and quality. Caipora’s sustainable pieces are all consciously gorgeous and are truly making a difference.
Use of seeds
Caipora’s ecological items showcase traditional and multicultural Brazilian art and biodiversity at its best.
All the elements of Caipora’s jewellery from design to production are carefully selected and meticulously manufactured. During this process they pay special attention to the treatment routine and the product finishing, guaranteeing an impeccable final piece handcrafted by artisans.
Caipora’s products are made of natural materials and can vary in size, colour or shape, which makes of each one of our products a unique piece, thus embracing our own differences, as we are all unique individuals!
All of Caipora’s fabulous pieces are sold with a natural fibre mini gift bag, providing protection and consistency at all stages of the process and enabling our clients to buy a wonderful conceptual gift.
