  • Features truly amazing textile pieces made in a traditional style. The craftsmanship is amazing. Prices are very high compared to other markets but the quality was easily the best I saw anywhere in Peru. If you want a one of a kind piece and would like to help support the communities that produce these amazing pieces - this is the place to do it.
  • Very interesting place. I highly recommend.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
