They have really nice textiles, but the center was small and underwhelming. I thought they would have a lot more choices and items than they do. But if you want the real thing, at the highest prices, this is the place to come.

Nice typical Peruvian textiles with artisans at work in the store. If you're not planning to go to textile centers in the Sacred Valley this is a very good alternative.

The textiles are amazing at this place, but be prepared to pay for what you buy...not like the cheap market finds, however these are made to last a lifetime!

A whirlwind stop in an overwhelming assortment of beautiful handmade textiles, with indigenous weavers plying their trade amid the merchandise. Not cheap, prices in USD$, but top quality work.

The 'Centro de Textiles Tradicionales' is in Cusco itself, near downtown. Walking time is less than 8 minutes from Plaza de Armas, downhill on Avenida el Sol, a wide street for Cusco standards.
