68 tongues, 68 hearts.

The most beautiful thing to be found all week. 68 tongues, 68 hearts - an animated project aimed at preserving and sharing the indigenous languages of Mexico, all 68 of them.

Unfortunately, for us, the subtitles are only in Spanish but that leaves your ears open to hear the language and your eyes free to lap up the illustrations. Enjoy!

He's been dealing with the devil and it sounds pretty darn good.



It's been a while blog, but I've finally stumbled upon something worth sharing. More soon one hopes.

Unravel is a short documentry (just 14 minutes of your time) about the women and men who recycle the clothes thrown away from the West deep in India's industrial interior. The women talk about how it must be so expensive to wash clothes in the West, otherwise there is no explanation for throwing out clothes worn once of twice. It definitely got me thinking. I hope it gets you too!

Tucum and the pulseira

Here in Rio de Janeiro, up on the hill of Santa Teresa there is a tiny store called Tucum that stocks all kinds of brilliant products, most of which is designed and produced by the indigenous people of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest.

One of my favourite products from this wee shop is the pulseira, a kind of thick bead bracelet with no stretch.

Here is how to wear it.
