Shipibo Conibo Kushma

Shipibo Conibo Kushma


Yanapuma has hand selected the best of the best in this rare ceremonial textile, called a Kushma. These are worn exclusively by male shaman during  traditional plant medicine rituals and will make a stunning wall hanging, altar space or whatever you may envision for yourself, the possibility is unlimited. 

Deep in the Peruvian Amazon live the Shipibo Conibo people who create unique styles of visual art that are inspired by Ayahuasca visions. In the embroidered artworks, called Kené (pronounced Kuh-nuh), these tribes make homogenous, minimal designs, composed of lines, dots, and zigzags... beautiful, yet simple.

Their traditional weave is known worldwide for it's mystic symbology and reverence for nature and the unseen spirit world. Shipibo embroidery has caught the attention of many North Americans and Europeans, and is quickly gaining popularity around the world. 

This piece is a one of a kind hand embroidered Kushma from one of the families Yanapuma is proud to serve that have been weaving their vibrations into art for generations.
