This free exhibition includes illustrations of local weavings, a small museum of andean textiles, and, of course, a store. The museum is really spectacular and illustrates a lot in a brief visit. The quality of the textiles is amazing. However, the prices in the store are quite high also. It is a good place to learn about the best in... 更多

There are so many fake 'alpaca' woven/knitted things to buy everywhere it's nice to find the one place that is regulated & authentic. ALL the items sold are woven using traditional materials, dyes & techniques. Museum quality souvenirs & although the prices are definitely higher than the street markets you get a quality product.
Amazing weaving at display here. The lost knowledge of indiginos people is pointed out. Very nice craftsmanship, Incredible difficult for us to understand. If you know how much work goes into 1 cape, The prices at the market cant be fair. Pls give them a fair tip!
Prior to travelling to Peru, I'd read that many textiles were created overseas and sold as authentic pieces. It is important to me to make sure my dollars would be supporting local communities. The Centro de Textiles Tradicionales gives back 70% of funds raised back to the weavers' home communities. As well, you can see traditional artisans working onsite as... 更多
If you can't get to Chichero, or one of the other major weaving/textile centers in the Sacred Valley, then this is the place. Nilda Alvarez started this museum-cum-textiles workshop/retail gem to honor the elders who weave and pass down their traditions to today's youth. There are lots of brilliantly colored, and texturally complex pieces to see, touch and admire here.... 更多
The women working to preserve a cultural treasure of the craft of weaving. We learned about the dying and spinning process. We were able to purchase quality products from the women who made them. Excellent experience.
