Got a chance to see how the fabrics are still being made. Mothers with lots of young children in tow, working hard on beautiful patterns.

I loved meeting the weavers and hearing about how they make their wonderful products. I bought many bracelets, scarves, and other items to take home. Highly recommend.

CTTC supports the spinners, weavers, knitters and ropemakers of the Sacred Valley. People high in the Andes are able to get their incredible textiles to market with the help of CTTC. The prices are great and the natural textiles even better.

If you look at most of the 'artisan' markets you will start to recognize many of the patterns, and it is obvious that they use artificial dies. Many of these stalls buy stock from a large organization, who in turn pay their weavers a pittance....More

Wonderful selection of hand woven goods, artisans are said to receive 80% of the proceeds. There were some lovely ladies weaving in the center. You will find some goods that are quite distinct from other shops.

The quality of the products you will see here is much higher than what you find in most of the tourist shops. There generally are 5-8 women sitting on the floor doing their traditional weaving, using patterns they keep in their heads from childhood on....More

My 11 year old son took a two day weaving class and loved the experience. Thanks to Felipa his instructor and Nilda Callanaupa for all the work she has done for the surrounding community.

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.

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.
