    Inspired by the Majestic Amazon

     For Shipibo people, Kene are described pathways on a micro and macro scale. As the meandering rivers leading to their villages, a cosmic serpent, or the veins in a leaf that bring nourishment to a plant.  

    Embroidered by Artists

    The Shipibo women are considered artists. For the Shipibo women, the intricacy of their skirts signal their "shina" which is a combination of intellectual, creative, and  spiritual depth - an essential part of the woman's identity.

    SUPPORT CULTURAL CONTINUITY

    Product showcase


    Today, the Shipibo-Conibo women have adapted their embroidering techniques.

    Through the incorporation of color, beads, and innovative techniques, the Shipibo Conibo women continue to evolve their art as a living tradition.  The embroideries continue to supply women with income to preserve their cultural heritage.

    Through expanding their social networks, they have begun to chart a new path. Inspired by their counterparts in the Andes, they seek visual representation of their Kene internationally.

    The incorporation of the women's embroidery in Kuskaya's latest collection reflects the importance of inclusivity of Shipibo-Conibo art in contemporary Peruvian designs -  while, at the same time, allowing to create a pathway that reinforces their unique cultural identity.
