The Amazon rainforest is the only place in the world where rubber trees grow wild.
At first glance, wild rubber may appear to be nothing more than a commonplace material, a useful natural resource serendipitously made available to local residents. However, these trees are intricately woven into a complex tapestry of connections between local producers and the global market, revealing a deeper and more meaningful story of ecological and technological advancement, reflecting on social and environmental sustainability.
At AMADEU, we believe that wild rubber is one of the keys to preserving the Amazon’s natural resources. Our range of wild rubber biomaterials supports the conservation and restoration of the ecosystem, nurturing native biodiversity and benefiting local communities. They come in a rainbow of hues, harvested from the vibrant, living forest. Unmatched in quality and versatility, they are ideal for a wide range of industries and applications.
We are pioneers in the work of coloured wild rubber for Fashion, and the only company in the world to produce and distribute these materials from the Amazon rainforest. By choosing wild rubber, you are not only differentiating your brand with unique, colourful biomaterials that truly stand out, but you are also making a positive impact on the environment.
Investing in sustainable wild rubber helps to conserve the Amazon rainforest and its extraordinarily rich natural and cultural heritage.
