Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rare Ethnic Art Ethnic art is rare. Ethnic art by a small ethnic group is even rarer. Before purchasing this item, I did my own research. Estimates of the Shipibo population range from only 25,000 – 35,000. They cling to their traditions and use a motor boat only for medical and social needs. Otherwise, canoes are the means of transportation. So, yes, Peruvian Connection is correct – these shawls were carefully hand-sewn and then traveled by canoe on a river through the Amazonian rainforest. I’m very glad that PC supports such unique ethnic art and the women who make it. I’m also very glad that I now have a rare sample of same.
