Shipibo Tapestries from Peru
All of our textiles are sourced from local markets in Iquitos, Peru.
Each cloth is unique and hand made on either a light weight or heavy fabric and all are hand stitched.
The images and patterns in the fabric represent ‘Icaros’ or medicine songs that are sung during ayahuasca ceremonies. During ceremony, the songs display themselves in a visual form and are then hand sewn on to the fabric.
