Mestana cloths (Mastana) are used to wrap the medicine stones and items, to swaddle them so the energy can be focused and used. The Q’ero cloths are woven of energy symbols. These symbols in turn bring energy to the medicine stones. Traditionally used as birthing cloths for the babies, they then help us to birth ourselves along our Spirit path. Mixture of sheep’s wool and alpaca fiber.

Enjoy the variety of Mastana Cloths (sometimes spelled Mestana) from the Villages of the Andes.  We’ve received an amazing selection of rainbow textiles from the weavers of Chinchero, Peru. This village is known as the rainbow community because of its glorious, naturally dyed fabrics formed in celebration of Kuichi, the Quechuan term for rainbow. The rainbow was sacred to the Inka, as it spoke to the diversity and expression of their grand social, cultural, and political experiment.

The ladies of the Chinchero weaving community asked us to support their crafting of a number of these stunning pieces. Each unique fabric represents the woven rainbow signature of the weaver herself and of the Chinchero weaving community.

Whether used as your mastana, a companion mesa piece, or a decorative item in your home, you will certainly notice the exceptional quality of these weavings that have been dreamed into being and woven in the prayer of creation.
