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.

Here you must give a loook around first. There are plenty of different kinds , prices and quality Do not accept their first price, be nice and ask for you discount. Sure you will get beautiful "artesanias peruanas".

Fantastic watching there very talented ladies doing their weaving demonstrations to the delight of many people watching. Of course many of us bought some of their treasured items. The earthy colours are brilliant. We were very fortunate to see a few of these talented ladies in some hotels as well.

They have a nice, free musuem about weaving traditions. I wish I could have had someone give us tour and explain more about it, though I did read all of the signs.

While the prices in the store are high, I can say that I didn't see any comparable items for sale in the markets in Cusco, Aguas Calientes or Pisac during the remainder of my trip. So you if see something here that you love, I would recommend getting it instead of hoping to find it for less at one of the markets. At least you know this is a fair trade establishment.

Want to learn more about the history/culture of weaving? This is the place to visit! The museum is chock full of information, the shop includes women working on looms and there are many items to purchase. Additionally, your purchases support the community of women who continue the authentic tradition of weaving.
