For a fun and floral addition to your kitchen or dining room, this tray from Brazil is presented by ArtFio Artisan Association. Local artisans hand-crochet the colorful floral motifs from cotton, covered by a clear glass panel. The tray's frame is made from pinewood, accentuated on the sides by cotton handles.
In the small town of Sao Goncalo do Amarante, knowledge of their specific crochet technique is passed down from generation to generation by the women of the families that are part of the association.
Their work has been seen on national television programs and in newspaper articles, especially when the artisans began to decorate trees in the community with their crochet for Christmas festivities.
The ArtFio recently became a NOVICA artisan group. They are working hard with the hope that this opportunity will help them grow and provide more income for their families.
In 2012, The Association of ArtFio Artisans was awarded as one of the 'Top 100 Artisans of Brazil' by the government.
