You may be surprised to find Japanese descendants, sisters Fatima and Moriko Hamakawa running the oldest and most traditional of indigenous shops in the city. Casa do Amazonas has been selling authentic artefacts for more than 30 years, mainly to collectors and foreigners. ‘We’re very careful not to sell objects made for tourists,’ says Fatima, sourcing their arts and crafts directly from indigenous communities.
