Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco (CTTC) Tours

Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco (CTTC)
From boldly patterned, knitted ponchos to bright, intricately woven textiles or chullo hats made from baby-soft alpaca wool; few visitors leave Peru without buying some of the country’s colorful handicrafts. The Andean region in particular is world-renowned for its dazzling textiles, incorporating unique indigenous designs with traditional weaving techniques and locally sourced materials like sheep, alpaca and llama wool. It’s possible to buy the products all around Peru, but for those looking to learn more about the region’s rich craftmaking heritage, the Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco (CTTC) is a must. 

As well as admiring the elaborate designs and purchasing handcrafted clothing and gifts, visitors to the Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco can learn the origins and traditions of the age-old weaving techniques, used by local craftsmen for more than 2,000 years. Demonstrations of the wool preparation, dying and weaving techniques by skilled local weavers offers a unique insight into how the complex designs are created and the ladies are happy to share their inspirations behind the various patterns and color combinations, explaining how each Andean village has developed their own distinctive designs.
