A striking printed fabric inspired by the traditional "Ikaro" patterns used by the Shipibo tribe in the Amazon Jungle. They represent the journey taken while under the influence of the Ayahuasca root.
Ayahuasca is an Amazonian plant concoction that has been used for centuries, possibly millennia, by native Indian and shamans across the upper Amazon in northern Peru. Ayahuasca was, and still is, used by the shamans of the Amazon region for healing and divinatory purposes.
The Shipibo culture, originating along the Ucayali River in the Peruvian Upper Amazon, is well known for shamanism and plant medicine. The use of Shipibo imagery related to ayahuasca is widespread and the well-recognized Shipibo patterns of ikaro are synonymous with ayahuasca and its practice throughout Peru.
The fabric comes by the metre; it is 156 cm wide.
