Mazelike and geometric, Shipibo-Conibo designs are drawn painstakingly by hand using dyes made from a combination of berries, mahogany bark and mud from the banks of the Amazon. Their intricate patterns and motifs speak to the shamanistic heritage and cosmology of a proud people — from the Southern Cross that divides the night sky to the cosmic serpent that encompasses all creation.
Our fabrics are created in Paoyán, a village in the lower Ucayali along the banks of the Amazon. Every village, family and weaver has their own unique pattern, passed down through generations of craftswomen. Your diary will feature the same overall black-and-white colour palette, but its pattern may differ from that pictured here.
