These teardrop earrings are made sustainably in the environment in which they are created. A special kind of grass is cleaned and dried before it is hand-weaved into what you see. Beads and string adorn the earrings to give it a splash of color. They are lightweight and extremely comfortable. You will also be amazed at their solid construction.

Biulu products are more than just products, they are the idea that business/customer transactions can also put something back into the world - not just consume it. The initiative of a business with a purpose cannot be materialized more clearly than with these earrings which are produced by a politically displaced and isolated group of Tzotzil women who are lead and represented by a beautiful soul named Zoila Velasco Lopez. Working along side NGOs and a sector of the Mexican government, Biulu Artisan Boutique is helping them to realize economic stability while supporting the community to realize their dream of developing into a self-sustainable Indigenous pueblo.
