Hi everyone

I've got a friend here in Bristol who wants to source Mozambican Capulanas for the 20th anniversary of Bristol's twinning with Beira in Mozambique next year. Any advice/help be most welcome, thanks.

Hi, si:su. Please check the discussion posted above yesterday if you're interested in silk fabric - organic (not certified), fairly traded, handwoven, coloured with natural dyes.

Comment by Amanda Judge: Andean Collection on July 13, 2009 at 17:55
Hi - I am the founder & designer of the eco-friendly jewelry label, The Andean Collection. We transform seeds and nuts from the rainforests & lowlands of South America (tagua, acai, pambil, jabon, huayruro) into chic beads, which resemble many of the popular synthetic materials in the mainstream jewelry market. We also manufacture specialty orders, using our natural materials. The main problem with working in these materials is consistency of color, quality and supply. BUT after a lot of hard work we have developed a very reliable supply chain in Latin America. If anyone is interested in having a piece made with these natural materials, I can get it manufactured for you - we have experience with large department store orders, as well as those for small boutiques. In addition to working as a supplier, we sell wholesale from our own collection too!

On another note, I'd love to start working in recycled metals. Particularly I'm looking for a good source for recycled chains, or chains made from ethically extracted silver/other metals. Thanks!
