We are proud and excited to retail these beautiful, hand made purses & medicine pouches from Peru, South America.These are lovingly made, keeping local traditions alive and supporting local small communities in the high Andes mountain villages.
These Purses/ Medicine Pouches are made from brightly coloured textiles from the Qero's Shaman community and Chinchero. They use very finely yarns from alpacas and llama's that are naturally dyed and spun by hand.
The Q’ero are descendants of the ancient Incas and their medicine people, known as “Paqos,” still use their hands to craft their story telling textiles. By weaving these beautiful and meaningful stories, these medicine men and women are preserving and sharing their healing knowledge, beliefs and traditions. Their main philosophy is “Ayni”, which means reciprocity and include balance and harmony with the Earth and with each other.
The Q’ero follow the Shamanic path of honoring all relations as sacred, including plant, stone and animal. They are progressive thinkers who live with reverence and respect for Mother Earth, called “Pachamama” in their native language, Quechua, and are dedicated to preserving this beautiful planet for generations to come.
We invite you to experience their heartfelt creations as part of your spiritual practice for your prayer bundles, ceremonies and rituals.
