Woven Fibers

The Matsés are master weavers of various cultural objects such as woven ornaments, baskets, hammocks and fishing nets.


Made with chambira fibre, the full making process can take weeks but the result is a beautiful and strong hammock which will last years even in the most humid of rainforest conditions.


In the majority of Matses households you will often find an array of fishing nets in different sizes. Made with chambira fibre these everyday objects are used in traditional fishing practice.
