Details

All Shipibo textiles are created by women; embroidery cloths and painted cloths. In the painted cloths, patterns, referred to as kene, and depicting ayahuasca-based cosmology, are applied to natural, undyed cotton cloth or on cotton dyed in mahogany bark. The pattern is applied with a pointed bamboo quill or an iron nail using the juice of Huito (Genipa americana) berries, which produces a blue-brown-black dye. The patterns are visual music maps or scores documenting songs and chants icaros used by shamans during ayahuasca healing ceremonies.
