Shipibo-Conibo Table Runner

85.00

Peruvian indigenous people from the Ucayali River in the Amazon rain forest, the Shipibo-Conibo are widely regarded in the Amazon as being masters of Ayahuasca.

The vine of the Ayahuasca grows throughout the jungle and is believed to connect the earth and the universe. Drinking the tea provides an enlightened state where they claim to see the patterns of the universe. The geometric patterns in their dyed fabrics and weavings are meant to reflect the energy of life.

All the artisan crafts (weaving, painting, embroidery, etc.) are done by women. They grow their own cotton, spin their own yarn, and dye the fiber themselves. Often, they use mahogany bark to dye their fiber.  

Each of their designs is unique because the Shipibo don’t understand why you would replicate identical designs. Design is reflective of the artist and their interpretation of the universe while they are creating. 

This table runner is hand woven and hand-dyed with mud from the riverbanks near their village. Procured in Cusco, Peru.

Measures: 17” x 60”
