Mujus designs and handmakes earth-friendly accessories that stand out for their vibrant colors
and elegant yet rustic beauty.
Since ancient times native communities in Peru have made jewelry and accessories using seeds, tree barks, and natural fibers. During the Inca empire (1438-1533), certain seeds were used as adornment exclusively
by the Inca family as amulets endowed with magical powers.
A cast of artisans have dedicated their lives to the creation of elegant accessories using the materials found in their surroundings. Working with the descendent of this cast of artisans, MUJUS (moo-hoos) aims to create pieces inspired by an ancient culture yet showing modern designs. In their designs they mix the energy of a city like New York with the calming nature of the green pastures of Peru. Just like in the Inca times, they use organic materials such as Amazonian seeds, totumo, alpaca leather, and recycled silver to create designs that stand out for their elegant yet rustic and rare beauty.
Their pieces are designed in Brooklyn, NY and manufactured at the MUJUS workshop located in Peru using techniques that build up from procedures that have been used for centuries but that they perfect to withstand the quality standards of a globalized world.
These vibrant accessories are “wearable artwork” mixing history with modern tendencies including the preservation of an increasingly vulnerable environment.
