High end weaving and textiles store
Jan 2020
It's like a museum except everything is for sale. Better yet it's a fare trade place run by a cooperative so you know that the artists who make the works actually get paid. Large pieces down to bracelets. Lots of fun.

Tasteful store with a nice variety of goods
Oct 2019
This fair trade shop is a great place to pick up the woven goods and a variety of other works from native artists in Bolivia. They mostly sell the woven patterns of the Inca Pallay, incorporated in a variety of ways, be it wall hangings, belts, or wallets and there is also for sale pottery and paintings. Beautiful store for gifts and each sale helps the communities whose works are represented.

Lovely shop with nice quality things. From different villages around the regions. Ended up buying two lovely wall hangings, and soo tempted for other garments but suitcase already full. One of the better shops I have seen in Bolivia. If you are after a quality nice souvenir they pay them a visit.

High quality and nice shop
Dec 2016 • Couples
This shop is a very nice place to find high quality cloths and handcraft bracelets. If you are lucky you will see people working in the patio. Of course, items are quite expensive in comparison to a regular shop.

Ethic souvenirs for all art/culture lovers
Oct 2016 • Friends
This nice shop has a lot of different pieces of high quality indigenous art! Different to what you find everywhere on the street, they sell hand made products from women on the countryside who receive a fair payment.
You can find decorative articles, especially "tejidos" (weavings) from different cultures, clothes, bracelets, bags, shoes, "medicina natural", etc. ... if you read the signs or ask for it you can learn a lot about the indigenous cultures! It's worth visiting!!

Something Different
Mar 2016 • Couples
Great shop that doesn't have the normal tat you find as a souvenir. It seems in Sucre every stand has the same old mass produced stuff but not here. There were some really nice wall hangings and bags for sale with fabric inlays amongst other itmes. What's more is that the items here are produced from the local community so you get something that you can actually use back home and support the community. Some really unique items and i recommend a visit
