Tika's Women's Cooperative
An incredible group of resilient women, this artisan group built their cooperative around the craft of making greeting cards. Struggling to find a market for their goods, they were connected to GREENOLA STYLE through community partners. After much on the ground time and training, Greenola and Tikas collectively identified new materials that would open greater opportunities of enterprise and growth. Tika's now uses their expert craftsmanship to create a beautiful line of repurposed, indigenous seed jewelry. Working from their homes, they are located in the newly established, immigrant community of Buena Vista. This style is made from repurposed acai and/or bombona seeds, a natural material indigenous to the South American Rainforests. The dried out seed is dyed using a low-impact dye, hand washed, and laid in the sun to seal the vibrant color. This is seed to style.
