Amazonlife

Amazonlife is a Brazilian brand created by partners Bia Saldanha and João Fortes in 2000. The brand makes bags, briefcases, clothes and accessories from treeptap, a patented method in which the Amazon’s indigenous and rubber tappers extract latex that is transformed into rubber ideal for their products.

Due to financial problems, the Bia and João had to welcome new Italian partners. Today the brand is an international brand and works with other brands such as Hermès, the Dutch bicycle factory Giant and the British cosmetics company Lush.
