Encompassing the states of Amazonas, Acre, Amapá, Roraima, Rondônia, Pará and Tocantins, the Northern region of Brazil is the largest in the country, comprising a huge area of 3,853,677 km2 (more extensive than the area of most countries of the world), within which is concentrated most of the Brazilian Amazon Forest.
Formed only by three states – Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Goiás (where the Federal District, capital of Brazil, is located) – the Brazilian Midwest has the second largest territorial area of the country, with 1.6 million km2, only smaller than that of the Northern region, with the majority of its population concentrated in only a few large cities. It is also here, on the border between Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul, that the Pantanal is located, the most famous biome in the region. Apart from Pantanal, the Midwest immense territory encompasses a great diversity of vegetation, which strongly influenced the development of the different cultures of each state.
Formed by the states of São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo and Rio de Janeiro, inhabited by 85 million people and currently representing more than 50% of the country’s GDP, the Southeast region is paradoxically one of the smallest regions in Brazil (only four states distributed in 924,620 km²).
Place where the first Portuguese explorers arrived in the late fifteenth century, the Northeast region was also later the main point of entry for most of the black slave ships coming from Africa brought to the country. This mixture of black and white, tempered by the indigenous traditions of each region and the strong presence of Catholicism, has created a great diversity of cultural expressions in the region, which is reflected in the multiple options of craftwork that each state offers.
