This combo features a traditional Jempo and Tsagi bag. Jempos are a commonly used element among Matsigenka people to carry any kind of object or material, crafted from fibers obtained from the inner bark layer of the cetico tree that are twisted into yarns; giving elasticity to the shape. In their designs, patterns are created by adding the colour purple, which they achieve by rubbing the yarns with sanipanga leaves.

The Tsagi uses native cotton from their territory, handwoven with intricate geometric motifs on small wooden hand looms coloured with natural pigments.

Dimensions (approximate): Jempo: 22cm x 35cm, strap 47cm / Tsagi:15cm x 15cm, strap 66cm
