Shipibo - Textiles

Akin to the traditional women's faldas, or skirts, which are woven with patterns of protection, these cloths are considered to be healing cloths. They are used in the shamanic healing ceremonies where they are placed upon the patient's body to infuse it with the healing power of the featured icaro or medicine song. The design on this cloth is said to bring good health and prosperity. Use as a ground or overlay cloth on your altar or mesa or hang as a work of art. Hand made in Peru.

  • 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
