  • To learn how they manage the different colors for the dyeing of wool. Their attention is barbara, all the people very committed to explanations and a mood like no other. Expensive normal prices but are of help to the community, so it is worth spending a few pesos more.

  • Excellent! Nice pieces made right in Cusco. Negotiate the prices. Ladies show how items are made. Well worth the trip. 
  • If we want to see not only merchants and artisans, is good to see them working in the store... the quality of their garments are amazing... they are high prices but they are worth it...
