Syngonanthus nitens is a grass-like species of Eriocaulaceae found in the Jalapão region of Tocantins, Brazil - the region is part of the Brazilian cerrado. Its main feature is the bright and golden color, hence their common name "capim dourado", which literally means "golden grass". Craftsmanship by S. nitens began in Jalapão, in the Afro-Brazilian community of Mumbuca in the municipality of Mateiros. Indigenous people, probably from the Xerente ethnic group, taught the art to locals as they passed through the area around the 1930s. Moriche Palm's (The Plant Silk). For decades, handicrafts were made only by women for household use and / or sporadic sales. Today, there are at least 12 local community associations. Flowering of Syngonanthus nitens begins in July and the seeds are produced from the beginning of September to October.
