Museum and Store

Our Store

Minutes away from the center of Cusco our store is located right in the middle of Cusco’s Cultural and Historical areas. In our Cusco headquarters, we proudly sell the various exquisite textiles created by our Weavers and their communities. Also you will be sure to see visiting Weavers from our nine communities working right in the store! Check our Catalogue for pictures and price estimates. Be sure to stop by on your way down Aveneda De Sol, the busiest street in Cusco.

Our Museum and Culture

A few years ago, thanks to donations and support received, CTTC accomplished another one of its most desired goals; the purchase of a building in the center of Cusco and convert it into a textile museum. In addition, the Center also has designated space in this building for dormitories. In these dormitories live visiting weavers from our various communities.

The Center’s first and current exhibit, “Weaving Lives,” presents the richness of traditional textiles focusing principally on the different functions textiles are used for in the different stages of life of the Cusqueñan weaver.
