Presentation on theme: "MIRITI: AN AMAZON MATERIAL. My country is well known as a diversity cultural country, from North to South there are a variety cultures underneath one."— Presentation transcript:
In Pará, the Brazilian state where I was born, they use to make handmade toys, boxes, bags, threads etc.
I’m proposing to the Miriti be used as a new material to make shoes’ hills, instead of Cork.
Benefits are: it is lighter than the cork and the Styroform, it’s natural and the extraction of the Miriti can help a lot of poor people that live in this area.
For the global innovation we can not forget the traditional cultures, that, wisely, gives emphasis what really matters: to respect the nature, animals and people in general. What my country can contribute goes beyond of the material, we can contribute with creativity to use different materials in many ways.
