Combine an ethical shopping spree with the chance to acquire some unique Brazilian gifts at the third edition of the craft fair, Design da Mata. Bags, wallets, clothes, toys, placemats, baskets, jewellery and sculptures will all be on sale, handmade by around 100 producers from the Amazon and communities within Brazil’s Atlantic forest region, using natural materials such as banana straw and palm fibres.

Revenue covers the cost of this and some of next year’s event, with the rest – approximately 70 per cent – going back to the producers. A programme of debates and cultural events will accompany the bazaar, with one of the highlights being a series of tastings, on 28 November, that include mangrove oysters from the oyster cooperative of São Paulo’s coastal town of Cananéia. The cooperative is supported by chef Alex Atala's ATA Institute – read more about the institute in our review of Alex Atala's new book
