The Matsés tribe men are experts in the manufacture of arrows. Previously bows and arrows were used for combat, but at present are solely used to hunt. Arrows are approximately two meters long and very intricate craftsmanship is required during their fabrication. The feather is actually sewn on to the arrow shaft. Moreover, the arrow is decorated with an intricate woven pattern using "chambira" fibers that is both functional and ornamental.
