Incausa is a platform for indigenous social entrepreneurship and ultimately a study in progress, consciousness and sacred trade. Committed to the disenfranchised indigenous people of his home country of Brazil, Vinicius Vieira de Vieira created a non profit organization that uses all its profits to enable fair trade of indigenous artisanship and heritage. In 2012, Brooklyn based Incausa launched with aromatic Breu resin incense and purifying Palo Santo smudge sticks, from various Amazonian tree species. Today, the offerings have expanded into baskets crafted by the Xavantes and Mehinako tribes and woven purses created by the Krahô people, as well as items like hand-hammered singing bowls from Tibet. I’m looking forward to supporting this inspiring organization and helping them get one step closer to combating global poverty.
