For its production, Piola sources wild rubber directly from the source in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon forest.
It is in the Madre de Dios region that the "shiringueros", the rubber tappers, harvest the latex by taking the sap present in the trunks of the trees These producers have a right of exploitation, granted by the State , which allows them to protect their environment and part of their source of income.
By buying rubber at 5 times the local market price, we are actively contributing to the enhancement of their know-how, their quality of life and work, while limiting deforestation.
