Authentic, if expensive, textiles from women's cooperative

I don't mind paying for quality work, particularly when it supports women and traditional weaving. The story behind this textile group and its founder Nilda is amazing. The "home... read more

I don't mind paying for quality work, particularly when it supports women and traditional weaving. The story behind this textile group and its founder Nilda is amazing. The "home" textile center is in Chinchero village, and definitely worth a visit. To understand the back story, read the chapter on Nilda and "Juanita, the Ice Maiden" in Kim MacQuarrie's excellent Life... More

We stopped by the Mercado but found the goods at the co-op to be significantly nicer. There were groups of women working in the courtyard. Lovely stop. Highly recommend it.

This was a good place to go to actually observe the process of collecting the wool, cleaning & dying the wool, what was used to dye the wool, natural plants and grains, and the subsequent making of products. BUT, the price of the goods was very high compared to the various shops and markets in the plazas.

I`m not sure which one this is... There is one where they take you and you actually go to a store with exorbitant prices... Don`t buy there. There is another where you actually meet the women that do textiles with their own hands and themselves and their kids sell them to you in rudimentary stands (only 3 or 4). Families... More

A small place in the same block of Convento Santo Domingo/Qorikancha, just below the park. Interesting display of the craft and trade. Entrance is free, through the store. The prices of the textiles and clothes are quite steep.

We loved watching the weavers and touring the display about the weaving. The work is excellent and we bought some weavings for gifts.

Read about it almost on our final day in Cusco, however wished we had visited sooner as it is a great showcase of the best work in Peru. Prices weren't cheap however great for judging what a first class product would cost, plus also having an extensive stock of ponchos, shawls, scarves, table runners, cushions, etc. Visited Chinchero market and...

How can a few rooms of display be one of Cusco's best-rated spots? Because of the modern authenticity, amazingly successful mission of the Center and (can't lie) one-stop shop for the best textiles in the city. We spent three weeks in Cusco, and had wondered into store after store looking for good, authentic textiles. (Baby alpaca?! Try "maybe alpaca," at... More
