DUE TO THE HANDMADE NATURE, COLOURS MAY SLIGHTLY VARY
Our beautiful textiles are hand-woven by Shipibo people in the Amazon. Only natural indigenous plant dyes are used.
The fabric can be used as a wall hanging or on an altar.
There are also Icaros, in the ancient language of the Shipibo people.
An Icaro is a shamanic power song learned from an elder shaman or spirits. They are used to communicate with the spirits of the natural world, to heal the sick, and to actually provoke certain kinds of visual displays or visions in those intoxicated with ayahuasca. The most important of these songs are those learned from the spirits themselves or those received in the dream visions which can follow an ayahuasca session.
The snake is fire medicine, the medicine of transmutation and it is the symbol of transformation and healing. The shedding of the skin is also associated with astral travel and out of body experiences, thus in shedding your skin, the snake symbolically guides you
along the path of transformation. It is also about letting go and shedding the layers of your past.
The snake is cosmic consciousness, the ability to experience all things without resistance, and the knowledge that all things are equal in creation. It signals a great transition in life through new opportunities and changes.
The Shipibo-Conibo are an indigenous people along the Ucayali River in the Amazon rainforest in Perú. Formerly two groups, the Shipibo (apemen) and the Conibo (fishmen), they eventually became one distinct tribe through intermarriage and communal ritual and are currently known as the Shipibo-Conibo people.
The items are completely handmade by a family of the Shipibo tribe in the Amazon jungle of Peru. The items they make are always of high quality and completely unique. I am committed to giving more than a fair trade price for each item made. This is a great way for us all to support the indigenous communities of the world whilst providing a way for tribes to hold onto their traditions.
