The Trade Roots Collection is the creation and vision of Jeffrey Lewis, founder and owner since 1970. Lewis has a personal commitment towards preserving and revitalizing Native American trade and tradition in the Southwest. Trade Roots has grown and flourished from that same commitment. In the early years, Lewis spent much time in the Lacandon Rain Forest, collecting molted Macaw parrot feathers for use in Zuni and Hopi ceremonial costumes. Later, he began traveling the world, securing supplies of exotic shell and stone. Trade Roots was able to consistently bring pearl shell from the South Pacific, coral from the Mediterranean, amber from Chiapas, Mexico and the Baltic Sea, rhodochroscite, lapis lazuli, sugilite, turquoise, variscite, fossil ivory, labradorite, azurite and many other exotic materials all to be used by Native Americans for jewelry-making and fetish carving. Today, Lewis has these same rare and exotic materials handmade into beads. Each creation is unique and has a timeless feeling that always brings joy to the wearer.
