The quality of the alpaca items is perfect; blankets, ponchos, scarves, runners, hats, and so much more, The presentation that they provide to demonstrate their wearing, dying and cleaning techniques is impressive.

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.

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.
