Organic Shipibo Bag | Red
This Shipibo shopping bag has been completely hand-painted with sacred Icaros patterns.
The Shipibo see and hear these geometric patterns during Ayahuasca ceremonies, and reproduce the designs on their clothing and paint them on their houses and boats. The Shipibo believe the patterns are healing on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels.
Every design carries its own specific meaning. For example, to bring healing, wisdom, protection or to attract abundance.
These ‘artful prayers’ can be sung by the Shipibo because each design also functions as a musical score, called an ‘Icaro’.
The design element and the ‘Icaro’ operate cohesively to carry the power of the healing or blessing.
The colour of this bag is red (we have white and brown also – see our other listings)
Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage.
Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.
This is the only one we have in this colour, it’s unique.
The bag contains a pocket on the inside to easily store your purse or phone. The bag is secured by a zip fastener.
Do not machine wash! The bag has been dyed using natural plant dye.
