The Uma Mask (uma meaning face in kichwa) was developed by indigenous clothing designer Yana Manta, to promote community safety and social distancing practices during these difficult times. These reusable masks are hand crafted within the Pacha Arts family home, as a means of sustaining ourselves while our storefront remains closed.
It is not the first time indigenous communities are faced with these kinds of hardships.
This mask brings to mind more than 500 years of resistance and fight for our families and livelihoods.

The elements of nature come together through Bone & Quill, created by mestizo-indigenous artist Marcos Arcentales.
Porcupine quills are gathered to be crafted into one-of-a-kind accessories, melded with copper, silver wire. A touch of sparkle is added through beads of turquoise, amethyst, and other crystals, providing a unique personality to each piece.
