The Golden Grass, Brazil's exclusive product, grows up in the beautiful paths of Japalao. The practice of the crafting with Golden Grass started in the begginning of the 20th century at Mumbuca, a small community in the region of Tocantins. Now a days, harvesting has to be done under environmental protection standards so the grass doesn't end up disappearing. That means that, even though it grows all year long, the Golden Grass can only be harvested from september to november, and it has to be done in a way in which each grass is separated from its seeds. The seeds need to stay in the soil so it can keep growing year after year. This practice actually represents the main source of income of the local communities, where Golden Grass is known as the "gold of Japalao".
