Tea and Textiles: Visual Music of the Shipibo People

Tea and Textiles: Visual Music of the Shipibo People

In celebration of our new collection at Khazana, we will be exploring the intricate and beautiful textiles of the Ucayali region of Amazonian Peru. Join us for our second Tea and Textiles event to share and learn more about these handmade textiles by the women of the indigenous Shipibo tribe. Daniel Alcantara, who has been living in South America, will be our guest speaker, share his knowledge, and story. 

The intricate and colorful embroidery patterns depict plant as well as animal life seen in nature, dreams, or visions. Throughout the pieces are lines which represent melodies to healing songs and paths of energy. 

"The Shipibo designs are a representation of the Cosmic Serpent, the Anaconda, the great Mother, creator of the universe called Ronin Kene. For the Shipibo the skin of Ronin Kene has a radiating, electrifying vibration of light, colour, sound, movement and is the embodiment of all possible patterns and designs past, present, and future."
