Product Description

Complex linear fractal patterns are distinctive to the Shipibo women who design and make these colorful embroideries.

Cotton fabric forms the base cloth that is colored with an earthen clay slip from the Amazon region in Peru. The surface is richly embroidered with running stitch, cross stitch, and chain stitch. Each square is a unique imaginative handstitched design and takes weeks to make depending on the size.  The edges of this piece are cut and finished with blanket stitch.

Use these squares to cover pillows, insert into a jacket back, or mount on fabric for display.
