All of Copacabana accessories are carefully crafted by talented artisans in Brazil. Our golden grass COIN BAG are hand woven using grass that grows in the rural countryside of North Brazil.
Because each bag is handmade, each is an original piece. No two are the same.
But sustainability also means bringing more attention to work done by local artists in our communities. For example, our golden grass bags are entirely handmade by artisans in North Brazil. When the harvest time comes, these talented artists travel to the rural countryside where the golden grass grows. They spend days picking the grass and replanting the new seeds to continue the cycle. Once the grass has been collected, they spend hours upon hours carefully crafting each bag. Each bag is a unique work of art. But also, each bag is responsible for preserving these communities in Brazil. Selling one bag can send someone to college or provide the foundation for new communities to grow. That’s why they call these bags golden grass bags.
They embody everything it means to be sustainable.
