What is buriti silk?
Buriti silk is obtained from the fibers extracted from the fruit of the buriti, a palm tree native to South America, mainly in northern regions of Brazil. These fibers are traditionally used in the production of local crafts, such as baskets, bags and other items, due to their strength and durability, which also contributes to their use in manufactured products. Buriti comes from the word mbiriti , of Tupi-Guarani origin, which means "tree of life."
