    Product Description

    Hand Embroidered Shipibo Shirt

    The shirt is hand embroidered both front and back with a wide variety of stitches.  The front has a hand embroidered V neck trimmed with a blanket stitch.  The frontice piece measures 13 1/2″ X 14″ of hand embroidery in beautiful Shipibo design. The sleeves are also trimmed with embroidery.

    On the back of this shirt is a 13″ diameter circular panel of hand embroidered art.  Four straight chain stitch spines radiate from a tri-circle center, dividing the circle into eight pieces of traditional twisting Shipibo art. This is not only wearable art but frameable art. One of a Kind, it is a 100% unbleached cotton shirt.

    Shipibo design is a mixture of geometric patterns. Although the meaning of the designs has been lost, anthropologists theorize that the designs could be a form of language, or that they represent the twisting rivers and canals.  The Shipibo design seems to be a communal art as one woman could stop her work and another could continue with no disruption in the pattern.

    This is truly wearable art. Hand wash with a gentle cleanser.  Line dry and steam iron lightly as needed.
