Embera Masks

The Embera people of Panama are renowned for their basketry skills, fashioning beautiful items from plant materials they harvest in the surrounding rainforest, prepared and dyed in their villages. These fabulous masks are the work of Elvira, Rosa, Dominga, Silvia and their families. We have a small number of these animal/spirit masks bought directly from these lovely ladies - as their village is located within a protected national park, they cannot hunt in the surrounding forest and have only a limited area around their village in which to cultivate crops. As such, they depend on ecotourism and the sale of their handicrafts to bring in an income.

As each item is a one-off, please check availability prior to ordering.
