  • Our favorite place to learn about and purchase high quality traditional textiles in Cusco. Such a great organization and mission! A must visit.
  • Beautiful textiles from villages all over Peru. The price tags are written in USD not soles, so just take the time to read the tags before you buy. Great informational museum inside as well. Loved it!
