Excellent selection of Peruvian arts and crafts

This store offers one of the most informed selections of Peruvian arts and crafts. Though it can be a bit expensive, it's well worth the effort....

This folk art retail shop looks like an extremely well curated folk art gallery. There is an excellent mix of items from across Peru and the buyers absolutely select only top quality work. Of course the prices are higher than buying directly from the artisans, but what traveller has the time or the connections? Well worth a visit.

What an amazing place. You think you're looking for a souvenir shop but what you find is an amazing glimpse into the artistry of Lima & Peru. Mari is from South Wales but has been in Lima for 48 years. She is delightful and has a deep passion for keeping tradition alive. She a stickler for quality and workmanship and... More

The shop is very nice, the owner is a very knowledgable person in peruvian culture. I was very impressed with her knowledge. She let us see part of her house and It looks like a museum, she has very beautiful pieces.

This shop is in Lima’s Barranco District, not far from Miraflores. If you are interested in Peruvian folk art, it should not be missed. The owner and her daughter are very warm and welcoming and have their own very interesting collection. Even if you aren't in the market for folk art, it is a good education in Peruvian pre-Columbian art... More

Las Pallas have a large collection of all types of handmade crafts from throughout Peru. I particularly liked the beaded jewelry and hand carved gourds. There are options to choose among a wide range of price points.

We were warmly welcomed into what can only be described as a folk art museum and store on the loveliest street in Barranca. The owner who has amassed a wonderful collection of the finest handmade Peruvian art also shared her extensive knowledge of the people and regions from where each piece was made. We left knowing more about the craft... More

I did my research before my trip to see the various traditional handicrafts Peru is known for as I always pick up art to decorate my home with. I knew I wanted a retablo or two and from Trip Advisor found that this store is known for authentic crafts including a good selection of retablos. The owner takes pride in... More

If you're more on the artsy side, taste wise, this is where you want to buy gifts and souvenirs in Lima. The items in here are authentically Peruvian but are not your average typical mass market souvenirs. Set in the arts district of Lima, Barranco, this store houses a massive collection and is run by two lovely ladies who were... More

I expected to come into this beautiful collection, find nothing I could reasonably afford, and be snubbed for touching things I don't plan to buy. Imagine the exact opposite and that was the experience I had. The first thing the owner said to me was "Please don't feel obligated to buy anything. You're welcome to look for as long as... More
