Ready to Join?

Come and be part of this sustainable experience where you will learn to sew and embroider just like the ancestors of the Shipibo Conibo Peruvian community, besides knowing a little bit more about this fascinating culture where each patron and design has a unique meaning and history. At the end of the experience you will get to listen a Shipibo Conibo story and get a temporary tattoo made by a Shipibo Conibo Community Representative.
Did you know that the heart of the Shipibo culture is based on its spiritual, physical and cultural relationship with the jungle? And that KENE expression of the art of this community is a fusion of form, light, and sound that is transmitted from mother to daughter. Also that these designs are translated into tunes or ICARUS, where each design has its own melody?
50% of the funds raised are destined to the Shipibo Conibo Community in order to preserve this fascinating ancestral knowledge of this culture and 20% goes to Café Rilke and its social projects such as Seeding Seeds (https: // Protected content .com / sembrandosemillasperu /), who have been working for a long time to strengthen the capacities of children in precarious situations in Lima, PE.

Be ready to design and elaborate your own jewelry by learning Shipibo Conibo´s ancestral knowledge!
