These long, wide tapestries offer an inspired expression of the Peruvian Amazon and with beautifully complex color combinations, faldas make the perfect wall-hanging and can serve as elegant runners for your dining table or bed. When worn, they make for a wonderfully colorful scarf or wrap around.

The patterns you see are pictorial expressions of Shipibo songs which are continuously singing themselves into existence. Traditionally, they were painted and embroidered during ceremonial practice, as the songs were gifted to them from plant spirits. The wisdom of the Shipibo is as deep as the jungle; explore our Wisdom Portal to discover more about their tradition.

For most Shipibo communities selling of this Ancestral art is often the main source of income, and their work has very limited exposure, mostly limited to few passing seasonal tourists. Our project provides a free service for the artisans enabling them to market their craft worldwide.
