in Centro & Praça Mauá

One of Rio's best new handicraft stores stocks an exquisite collection of pieces from every corner of Brazil. You'll find ceramics with pre-Columbian imagery found in the Serra da Capivara, lovely eco-jewelry made of seeds and nuts from indigenous groups and brightly painted folk art from the Northeast, as well as sustainably made animal-free bags, vegetable-fiber woven textiles and all-rubber footwear.

There's much to discover here, and all of the products are fair-trade.
