My visit to Mari Solari's home/boutique was one of the highlights of my trip to Lima. Found in the lovely Barranco area of the city, which is full of crumbling ruins and recently renovated La Belle Epoc style arcitecture, and is worth a day of anyone's time to explore (great museums and galleries too). I had to ring the bell... More

In the lovely area of Barranco you will find a jewel box that is the home and shop of Mari, specializing in the best quality and selection of Peruvian handcrafts. While shopping for the "best of the best" in all price ranges, Mari will share her knowledge about the Peruvian culture and the pieces she displays. An added bonus is... More

Just went yesterday and fell in love with the shop( actually a little museum in a wonderful house) Everything is chosen with great taste and the quality is amazing. The owner Mary knows a lot about Peruvian arts and crafts and her private collection is incredible. Go, yuo will enjoy and help.

En Lima uno puede encontrar artesanías de muy mal gusto y calidad. No es el caso. Artículos muy bien seleccionados, la dueña conoce bien su rubro. La casa es lindísima. Altamente recomendable. Here in Lima you can find very awful but cheap handcrafts. This is NOT the case. Well selected articles, the owner knows her business very well. Beautiful house... More

This not so easy to find 'shop' is your best bet in Lima for exquisite handicrafts. The old house itsself is worth a detour and with the help of owner Mari you will find gifts for all your family and friends. Do not overlook the nativity scenes. These are the best I have found in Peru sofar ( and I... More

Mari Solari is obviously deeply involved in the preservation and development of Peruvian crafts. She was kind enough to not only guide us around Artesania Las Pallas. explaining the origin of many of the crafts on display. but invited us to see some of her own personal collection of crafts and paintings. A most interesting visit that I would recommend... More

Mari Solari's wonderful "shop" at Calle Cajamarca 212 in the Barranco section of Lima is impossible to describe without pictures. It is the front section of her beautiful blue home, from which she sells authentic folk art, weavings, masks, pottery, baskets, mirrors, trays, amulets - - - colorful, imaginative, beautiful, things that you simply must touch and stare and marvel...

This is where you go to buy quality Peruvian folk art. It's in a lovely Welsh woman's home painted in bright blue outside and beautifully decorated inside. Mary is the owner and by her own admission she is slightly eccentric. She lovingly talks about the artists that make the products she sells. She tells stories and makes you feel the... More

Love this shop/store/house! This has fantastic, well made artisan craftwork from all over Peru. None of the mass produced for the tourists dreck here...everything is well done and well curated. Mari is lovely and very generous with her time and knowledge of her stock. This is a must-see and the place to purchase for quality artwork. I often take visitors... More
