Adventures in Peru ~ Centro de Textiles Tradicionales de Cusco


Centro de Textiles Tradicionales Del Cusco



The art of weaving is a fascinating study.


We were able to observe it on several occasions


during our trip to Peru.


 The different professionals I spoke with indicated, that Quechuas who learn this trade,


begin their quest at age 20.


These large pieces weaving takes them a whole year to complete. What dedication!
