  • We met this place as part of our tour to several places around Cusco and it was a very pleasant and experience different, meet the women weavers and companies that have formed, how they have overcome and their families generate significant revenue. They are a very solid organization and their products are excellent.

  • It's a small, but great museum documenting the traditional Peruvian textiles. Very quiet, usually without any people so you can take to see the museum. Admission is free and also has a very clean bathrooms. There is also a shop that sells hand-made textile goods - high quality but also expensive. It's worth a visit when you are in Cusco.
  • This place encourages and teaches artisans in order to preserve traditional textile arts. Items for sale here are made by identified artists and are priced fairly.
  • Great shop with authentic weaving. There were weavers working there when we went in the day time. If you speak Spanish you can ask them questions about their work.
  • Nice little museum with working weavers. High quality, but high priced textiles.
  • You can watch the artists weaving. The museum is well done and overall the standard is excellent. You can but beautiful handmade items in the store.
