A lot of other stores boast alpaca, but it's machine made. This shop represents locals using time honored weaving skills, it's all handmade. The prices are on par with the better machine made shops.

A small textile museum with a live demonstration of Peruvian weaving techniques. Great shop too with many intricate textiles designs. Visit the museum before you purchase anywhere else. The Center will help you develop your "eye" for Peruvian textiles and craftsmanship.

The 'Centro de Textiles Tradicionales' is in Cusco itself, near downtown. Walking time is less than 8 minutes from Plaza de Armas, downhill on Avenida el Sol, a wide street for Cusco standards.
