We are pleased to introduce a small range of exclusive greetings cards that depict the lives and surroundings of the Macuschi tribe who live in Guyana surrounded by a magnificent Rainforest.
The cards are prints of wonderful original handmade embroideries of Guianan scenes produced by the Macushi women of Guyana. By buying this card you will be helping to support these womens’ families.
Organic Trevarno has held a long-standing association with the Macushi tribe and alongside partner organisation Pro-Natura, initiated a highly successful project where local women were trained in how to standardize formulas and procedures, including sterilization of bottles, for making Macushi medicines, soaps and creams for local use. This project also included providing crabwood oil which is naturally high in skin friendly vitamin E and has been used for centuries by the Macushi for its deep-cleansing and restorative benefits and which Trevarno use in the natural Crabwood & Lemongrass Soap.
