    The Shipibo artistic process utilizes hand-woven cotton, either natural un-dyed or dyed in mahogany bark, to bring in a rich brown color. The artisans paint the fabric with a pointed piece of bamboo using the juice of the crushed Huito berry fruits, which turns into a black-brown dye when exposed to the air.

    The Shipibo peoples are found in remote parts of the Amazon river basin. Even with contact to the developed world growing daily, the tribes have maintained a culture rooted in and to their ancestral environment. Every facet of their lives is influenced by the natural world. This aspect of their culture is reflected in art such as these eye pillows and sachets.
