Welcome to the Amazon Forest Store. We have just returned from Peru and will be offering exciting new products every week.

Maracas

Our maracas are made from calabash tree pods by Shipibo and Bora native artisans from the Peruvian Amazon.  These rattles are a perfect way to keep the beat in your band, join a drum circle, or give children an immediate way to make their own music.

The Shipibo style rattles feature a classic geometric design called an icaro. The Bora style maracas feature carvings of Amazon wildlife representing dozens of species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects.  All parts of the maraca are made with natural materials grown in artisan backyard gardens or the forest.
