Shipibo Embroidery & Painted Cloth
Supports Indigenous Cultures
The spirit of the Shipibo is incorporated into this cloth creation showcasing two different types of their art: their hand-painting and embroidery. These designs are based on the Shipibo ayahuasca-inspired medicine songs called icaros. No two patterns are exactly alike and all are hypnotically beautiful.
Measures 30 x 27 inches
This design is for good luck and tobacco energy for healing.
Created deep in the Peruvian Amazon jungle by Shipibo women. Use these as ground or overlay cloths for your altar or sacred space. They make beautiful wall hangings, too.
Shipibo - Textiles
Shipibo-Conibo, Amazon, Peru Approximately 30 years ago, as many as 150 different ethno-linguistic groups could be identified living in the rainforest jungles of Peru. Today less than 30 ethnic groups remain. Among these survivors is one of the oldest ancestral groups, the Shipibo people, who now are at risk of becoming extinct. It is estimated that perhaps only 35,000 Shipibo remain living spread out in as many as 300 different family villages. For centuries, these people have survived primarily through their relationship with the jungle and through activities such as hunting, fishing and traditional agriculture.
Shipibo artisans are well known for their colorful designs on pottery and textiles. Inspired by Ayahuasca-induced visions, creation stories and mythic folklore, these refined geometrical designs are sophisticated interpretations of cosmic realities.
