Tupano creates bracelets & charms from recycled newspaper

It is in a discrete mezzanine, in a bustling commercial center in Brasília, that fabric give form to diverse accessories. The work is done by stylist Thais Joi (photo), of the Tupano Brasil brand.

There are earrings, bracelets, charms, barrettes, headbands, belts, necklaces and broaches covered with or made entirely of fabric that reveal the exuberance of Brazil's nature in their design, the strength of survival from the Atlantic Forest to the Amazon.

Tupano's idea is to offer light pieces that provide well-being to women's ears and arms. “I developed the technique and improved it over two years of research," said the designer who now also creates bracelets and charms from recycled newspaper.

The raw materials include exclusive fabrics painted by regional plastic artists, coconut bases in various shapes (leaves, boards, crescent and waning moons, stars), aluminum bases (the thinnest stainless sheets found in the market) in various shapes like whole circles, hollowed out items, cambers, moons, leaves, stars, gold and silver leaf, and dye.

The prints that comprise the summer collection include toucans, red macaws, Australian parakeets, orange and blue tropical canaries. Gray snake leather as well as jaguar and zebra provide the look.

The collections roses are tropical hibiscuses and orchids. The fruits are grapes, apples and pineapples. Citrus yellow, orange, green, rose, lilac and blue are in the pieces. Some pastels give balance to the headbands and surfboard earrings.

Tupano is inspired by the Indian and through its production it retrieves love for nature, from animals to shapes, from colors to prints. And: it is worth mentioning that the first Brazilians were called Tupanos (synonyms of Tupis), protected by Tupan-an (God).
