  • On site we can experience the entire textile process, from the formation of the yarn, its coloration, and finally the loom. Beautiful pieces and price well into account.

  • Pretty cool place where most tours will take you to show you how the traditional garments are made. I like the fact that they didn't pressure you to buy anything but it wasn't anything crazy or something new that you wouldn't see in Peru
  • The weaving demonstration was nice. But they sell fake synthetic stuff labeled as alpaca wool for double the price you pay in Cusco!
  • Touristy but informative
  • I loved the presentation how llama wool is washed, prepared, colored and knitted. The woman who did the presentation had great sense of humor and made the group laugh many times. There is also alpaca and llama that you can take pictures of. I found myself bonding with the alpaca. Of course it is a store as well so you can buy alpaca and llama wool items.
  • Beautiful explanation of the artisan manufacturing process to create Lama textiles. It was very education and entertaining. The locals speak in Portuguese, Spanish, English and Italian. Very impressive!
