  • Mestana Cloths are wonderful woven expressions of the Peruvian Andean weavers' worldview. Because many traditional weavers believe that all of creation is imbued with spirit, the patterns they weave into their textile goods also express this natural energy and spirit. A mestana cloth, (also sometimes mastana) is a hand woven cloth which has both practical and esoteric purposes.

    Yet the real fascination of these woven works of art is the patterns and motifs they hold and what they signify.  These patterns are more than colorful, decorative designs. They have meaning, intention and energy.

    The designs tell a story of what the weavers see around them and how they interpret their world, explain their history or express their intentions. The energies and intentions, some say magic, this cloths hold make them the perfect grounding cloth for the sacred altars or mesas, of shamans, acting as a layer of consecrated ground upon which the shaman's medicine work is conducted.
