The typical dwelling of the inhabitants of the Amazon is the palafitte, called Maloca in the native language: a hut in wooden boards, with the roof of leaves positioned close to each other to create an almost waterproof cover.
A light, spacious structure – the families are often very numerous! – and particularly suited to the Amazonian environment, where seasonal rainfall results in a continuous fluctuation of water level in rivers.
The materials are all natural, collected from the forest in a sustainable way, according to the need of every family!
