CACE was a vendor at the 2016 Great Insect Fair - an annual event sponsored by the Penn State Univ. Dept. of Entomology to educate the public about many aspects of insects and other bugs. It included exhibits of pollinators, edible bugs, pests, and just plain cool critters. CACE featured many of our insect ornaments hand-made by campesino artisans from the town of Jenaro Herrera on the Ucayali River in the Peruvian Amazon.

This is a great strap for musicians to show their appreciation and support for native culture and the environment. The Anaconda model is based on a traditional Bora pattern of this large snake that lives in the rivers and forest of the Amazon. Each strap comes with a tag listing the artisan's name and community and the plants they used to make it. Sales help create a sustainable livelihood for artisan families and support health, education and conservation in their communities.
