Rapé Envira Ferro

From: 21.63

Rapé Envira ferro has its name given from a South American tree from the Oxandra genus. The Shawadawa people use the bark and trunk of this tree to make the ash that gives its name to this rapé. Blended with fine Arapiraca makes it a bright and smooth Shawadawa rapé. No additional herbs, just Arapiraca, and ash.

Rapé Envira Ferro

Envira ferro is a South American name given to trees from the Oxandra genus. The Shawadawa people use the bark and trunk of this tree to make the ash that gives its name to this rapé. Blended with fine Arapiraca makes it a bright and not extreme but still powerful shawadawa rapé. No additional herbs, just Arapiraca, and ash.

About the Tribe

Shawadawa (also known as Arara del Acre, Shawandaua, Shawanaua, Shawanauá, Shaonahua, or Shaodawa) is an indigenous group that inhabits the southwest of the Brazilian state of Acre. This tribe came in contact with Western “civilization” only at the beginning of the 20th century. The entire tribe currently consists of only 550 souls. Shawã means Macaws and Dawa means family, so they are the Macaw family.

Today, the main objective of the Shawãdawa people is to protect their lands, and their forests, where all our natural medicines are present. They are also always looking to save and maintain their culture, and the teachings of their ancestors.

Handling & Sorting

I sieve this Rapé Envira Ferro and all other snuff coming from my shop through a 120-micron high-grade stainless steel mesh. I also store the Rapé stock dry and in vacuum containers to prolong freshness and quality.

This results in.

  • an extremely fine powder.
  • a guaranteed consistent fineness
  • optimal absorption of the snuff
