This is a museum and a shop selling high quality local textiles. Well worth a visit if you want to purchase something different to the same old-same old on offer at tourist shops and stalls. You also get to understand the background of the products...More

A hidden gem (and free to visit, with optional donation!). This cute, lovingly curated little museum was one of our favorite places in Cusco. The rooms highlight different styles of weaving, different types of animal fibers and the methods for dyeing them, and the role...More

They have really nice textiles, but the center was small and underwhelming. I thought they would have a lot more choices and items than they do. But if you want the real thing, at the highest prices, this is the place to come.

A nice way to learn about traditional knitting and weaving techniques and use of plants and insects to obtain natural dyes and colors. ...and to purchase handcrafted souvenirs and clothing.

Nice typical Peruvian textiles with artisans at work in the store. If you're not planning to go to textile centers in the Sacred Valley this is a very good alternative.

The textiles are amazing at this place, but be prepared to pay for what you buy...not like the cheap market finds, however these are made to last a lifetime!

A whirlwind stop in an overwhelming assortment of beautiful handmade textiles, with indigenous weavers plying their trade amid the merchandise. Not cheap, prices in USD$, but top quality work.

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.
