Traditional Textile Center of Cusco

Weaving as art

This center is the shop and educational center for a cooperative of weavers from Chinchero.

If you are going to the The Sacred Valley town of Chinchero, visit the one there.

If you don’t have time to go to Chinchero, this is a great place to learn about the cultural importance of weaving for the Quechua people.
