Traditional skirt by Carolina

This is a beautiful example of the traditional skirts that the Shipibo women make and still wear. It would make a wonderful skirt, wall hanging and/or table covering. The work on this is incredibly detailed.

The designs show the traditional patterns called kené in Shipibo that are a central feature of the artwork of most Shipibo embroidered telas.

In this case, the deign portrays the legend of the formation of the river Ucayali, made by a huge black crocodile that swam upriver, when it used to be straight, and through its movements created the curves in the river.

Each of the designs on the telas are unique, even the very small pieces, and they cannot be commercially or mass produced. 

Handmade by Shipibo women
