Artisan Info: Butterfly jewelry purchases help support the Shipibo Indigenous community living along the banks of Huallaga River n the Amazon Jungle. Some of the most impoverished areas of Peru are located in the Amazon jungle. The butterflies have become a very important income generating resource to the Shipibo tribe and a means to safely maintaining their traditional way of life in the jungle.
