Chuspa Khuya or Qero Kintu pouches are versatile and meaningful items used for various purposes within spiritual practices. These pouches serve as containers for sacred items, stones, trinkets, and leaves used in prayer blessings. They are also employed for safekeeping and separating items of significance, including money, from other belongings. These pouches come in different sizes and designs and are often incorporated into personal altars to hold and safeguard sacred objects.
We are proud to collaborate with the indigenous Q’ero people in Peru, who are descendants of the ancient Incas and whose medicine people, known as "Paqos," continue to handcraft these storytelling textiles, including Chuspa Khuya/Qero Kintu Pouches. This partnership allows us to offer you some of the most potent textile weavings in the world, deeply rooted in tradition and spirituality.
These Peruvian hand made sacred textile pouches are made in the high Andes by Qero shamans who use these to either hold sacred objects or in rituals and ceremonies. 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. These textile weavings are stunning and are naturally dyed (do not bleed) and are woven in sheep or alpaca fine wools.
