WHAT IS THE GOLDEN GRASS?

Golden Grass comes from the humidgrasslands in the Jalapao region of the Tocantins state in northern Brazil, where it is an important source of income for villagers, about 500 families work with the Golden Grass. "Capim Dourado" how it is called in portuguese, it is a rare plant which has the appearance of spun gold and continues to shine after it is harvested. It is strong, durable and flexible enough to be woven into accessories and wearable ornaments. It is also very light in weight so that many-layered purses and handbags of complex design may be carried effortlessly, while bracelets and earrings that look like gold are virtually weightless.

Golden Grass from Brazil

The conservation management by the Brazilian government (EMBRAPA) assures that it is a renewable resource, harvested late in the growing season for maximum brightness and durability. The Brazilian government prohibits export of the raw grass (Sygonanthus nitens -eriocaulaceae-); only crafted products may be sold outside Tocantins state.
