- Interesting place, where they explain to you how is the process of dyeing wool with natural pickets; like plants, flowers, volcanic stones, and minerals like salt as a catalyst, also the spinning and weaving process.Written January 8, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This farm is an absolute must see! It is very informative of the culture of weaving and the alpaca/llama farming. The best part is that you can feed the animals yourself! Be sure to leave a tip as if goes to the right cause.Written February 29, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Bought most of my treasures at this family owned artesian shop. Great selection of Peruvian gifts and fair pricing. Located in the heart of the city with the loveliest people who didn't pressure you to purchase.Written December 13, 2021
- We didn't really try the chocolates but we had quite a few different ice creams upstairs in the coffee shop. They had some interesting flavors and the kids enjoyed the ice creams.Written February 15, 2020
- Tika Chocolates has the best chocolate you’ll find in Peru. I fell in love with their ingredients and had to bring some back to the US for my friends and family. It’s located close to the Plaza de Armas and has incredibly kind and multilingual staff.Written July 6, 2022

- Definitely worth a stop. Interesting local artists. Bought a collection of six from one artist and one from another but could have bought more. Didnt have enough time to finish transaction there so we emailed and they met us at the airport a week later with the paintings.Written January 22, 2017
- So happy my sister and I made an effort to come back to Pedazo de Arte when it was open. We both really enjoyed this more unique souvenir shop. We had been to some of the other open souvenir markets in Cusco but felt that they were very overwhelming and most of the shops /stalls had the same exact items for sale. I would say that Pedazo de Arte has more of a variety of items, more artsy items, and handcrafted items. I highly recommend this store.Written June 6, 2020
- In the narrow streets we stumbled upon this this hidden gem that serves high quality coffee at low prices. We had cappuccino and cafe latte (both very good!) and a vegan muffin with apple chia which was very tasty. The shop also sells a variety of products in quality alpaca wool. Very nice place!Written July 2, 2019
- If you want to have truly one of a kind bespoke clothing with chic flair and amazing details go to HILO!
Once you are in the small workshop, you are lured in by the samples and racks of super unique clothing.
I had 3 shirts & a skirt made for me in 24 hours- great final product, amazing clothes- get lots of praise- I’m the envy of my village because of her clothes. Great pricing and abilities- I thinking of having more clothes made as she has great eye!Written November 14, 2021
- Fascinating maps on the plaza. Semi bookended by McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken. Use them as landmarks to locate this shop.Written February 8, 2020
- This gallery will teach you about traditional textiles of ancient times and then dazzle you with contemporary work. As an intermediate (at best) knitter, I cannot believe the workmanship of the hand knit, baby alpaca sweater I bought today. The tiny stitches and wonderful colors are mind boggling, and it’s clearly hand done. The price was less than what I would need to pay for the baby alpaca yarn alone, and the work might take me the rest of my days. While I was buying a sweater, for a very fair price, my husband bought a retablo depicting a textile shop. We had a great time! The staff was informative and accommodating, never pushy. It’s a wonderful place! Textile lovers will be in heaven and anyone else should like it too.Written January 21, 2020
- matices andinos is a excellent shop to buy souvenirs in cusco peru, the staff is amazing, nice people, very good products.Written June 17, 2022
- Our tour guide with GOAHEAD tours took us to this place to give us a lesson on purchasing true alpaca. Gave examples of difference between fake and true Alpaca.
I purchased a blue long shawl sweater with white trimming along the edges with a full hood. US cost was $212.00 or $700 Soles. I was very nervous to spend that much but my friends assured me this had to be pure Alpaca since it was the factory and our tour guide would not mislead us. I saw this same type of sweater style at many different shops and they were selling for $100 Soles or US $30.00. They looked exactly the same but obviously had to be fakes. I can only hope I made the right decision by buying from this place but honestly it was very difficult to tell the difference even with the lesson. I noticed when I got home that my sweater had "no label". I can't even prove to anyone it was "pure alpaca". If it was true baby alpaca, then I'm happy with my purchase. My traveling friend purchased a reversible scarf for $50.00 US about $160 Soles. The sales people were very nice, not pushy at all. It was a very comfortable buying experience.Written October 4, 2018
